Pouring Molten silicon bronze into molds at 1975 degrees F for sword guard casting at Enchanted Spirits Studio
The Site Contents

Thanks for being here. I know that time on the internet is carefully chosen, and I want you to have a great experience while you're here. This site features my professional and collaborative works, hundreds of pages of great information about my knives, swords, daggers, photography, and writing. This is my business storefront as well as my curriculum vitae. I'm honored that you have taken the time to be here.

Not all of my daily work is as visually dramatic as the photo above: pouring molten bronze at 1975 degrees Fahrenheit into molds that are 900 degrees. The shocking glow of intensity and color only occasions the knife maker's world, and some of the tasks seem more visually mundane. For example, I start nearly every day typing on a keyboard, answering emails, writing code, annotating and formatting photos. The results of that effort have yielded the site distinctions that you can see in the Table of Contents below: hundreds of pages of knives, thousands of photographs, and a successful knife making career.

Like any large site, it's easy to get lost, simply because there are so many pages and so much information. There really is no way to condense a site and yet still offer the details of the work. What I have done is my best to organize the projects, topics, data, links, and record as much as possible. In the site rebuild, I've upgraded to dynamic web templates, cascading style sheets, UTF-8 coding, and strict XHTML for the most universal rendition of my words and illustrations across browser platforms and devices. I've also structured each appropriate page with a topics box and anchor links to help find and organize the information at the top of the page. While this site is made for large, high quality monitors and office and home computers, it should be navigable for hand-held devices. I know that many people are using these small devices for their internet experience, and if you are one of those people, I encourage you to view my site on a large monitor for the best rendition of the photos and the best arrangement and format. Most of my active and future clients view this site that way, and that is ultimately who the site is built for.

The structure of this page is really very simple. I've put every page into an applicable category, listed in the category anchor link box just below. Click on the category, and you'll go down the page and see the individual pages in that category. You can also just scroll down and see what interests you. As you hover over each link, in most browsers a screen tip or title describes the page. Click on the page to go there, use your back button to return here or link to the table of contents at the bottom of every page of this site. A few pages are listed under several categories because they apply to both. A browsed page will show a different color in most browsers, so you can see where you've been. As I've stated before on this site, there is no absolute rule to cruise through the pages, and you can always find your way by coming back here.

The information offered here costs only your time. It is copyrighted through the Copyright Office and the United States Library of Congress, so please respect the copyright posted on every page. I will continue to build, add, and enhance the site, so please check back to see what is new. It is my goal to present the best individual knife maker's site on the internet, and it is because of you the reader, who ultimately are, or may become my client that I am able to do this. Thank you for being here!
