Hello all

I’m Brian Carlson. I’m a new maker and have been consumed with this hobby since my first knife last June. I retired from the Army after 32 years, went into the corporate world for 10 years and am working for the state now. I have had a fascination with knives since Ali was a young boy, and even more as a Soldier where it was considered a tool. This learning experience started as an opportunity to try something new and give my Son-in Law and Son knives for their deployments. Since then I have found what I want to do in “retirement” years.

The makers on this site are awesome and have helped me a great deal. Since the first knife I have made over 45 knives for friends and family, getting better with each blade. I’m looking forward to getting to the level of some of the “master” makers on this site. Keep the info coming!
