"Thanks to Florida Artist Blacksmith Association and Skeeter Prather for taking me under your collective wings and instilling in me the simple fact that I will never know it all. Thanks to all the knife makers I've ever crossed paths with that have supported me in one way or another, given me guidance, advice, criticism, feedback or invited me their shop, especially John Butler (FL), Luke Snyder(GA) & Bill Burke (ID)."
Thank you to the amazing artists and creatives that have helped piece together what is Heartwood Forge.
