Hi Carl,

One of the problems with locating custom knife makers is that there have been thousands and thousands of them over the last 40 + years.

Many were just local makers who did little or no advertising.

Long answer to say, I have no idea who he is.

Perhaps if you could get a first name or a what part of the country he lived in. This would probably help your search.

Good Hunting.

Check with the Canadian Knifemakers Guild. The name sounds familiar but I can't place it on the top of my head.
