For quite some time Mike made art knives, specializing in liner lock folders using Damascus steel and natural handle materials such as pearl and ivory. A few years back Mike switched gears and started making traditional slip joint style knives, in the Bose style. Mike's star rose quickly, he become a "rock-star" with respect to this genre of knives. His fit and finish is top notch, his pieces walk and talk like they should and his waiting list is long.
