Post Trujillo's Cut-Ups - Custom Knives in New Mexico

Hey everyone, I'm in the process of making a new website to showcase my custom built knives, have a look at them Trujillo's Cut-Ups Custom Knives - About the Process.

About Me:
I am custom knife maker, Albert Trujillo or Big Al.
As a teenager, I was already enamored with knives. After testing a new set of kitchen knives by cutting off the corner of the family piano, l was told that one day I would make knives. Twenty years later that dream was realized.

I have been making knives since 1996. It all began when I found an old rusty blade without a handle out in a field one day. I decided to clean that blade up and put a new handle on it. As I was working on that knife sanding it down and marrying it to a new handle, ?it awoke the sleeping giant.? In 1998 I was lucky enough to find and buy a used 2 X 72 Burr King belt grinder. With the help of another knife maker,and some trail and error I figured out how to work with it (I now call her Mrs. Jones cause ?we got a thing going on?). As you can plainly see that for me this knife making thing has gotten all out of hand.
