Edmund has been a full time maker since 1986. He specializes in integral knives. He sites Bob Loveless as his inspiration to begin making knives and photographs of the work of Ted Dowell and Billy Mace Imel inspired him to focus on integral knife construction. Comments from Edmond regarding integral construction; “a knife that completely eliminated solder joints, gaps and vulnerable areas where stress risers could develop. The integral knife is quite simply a solid, homogeneous piece of steel with two handle inlays”. Edmond has developed over 90 unique integral patterns including designs from the shop of R.W. Loveless, from virtually indestructible camp and combat knives to hunting knife patterns and investment quality art pieces. He often has his art knives embellished with fine engraving and scrimshaw.
