Tracy “T.O.” Crane was born and raised on his family’s 5th generation farm in Kimberly, Alabama. He still resides there today. He learned the value of hard work by working in the local hay fields, Hughes Egg Farm, Bridlewood Stables and his family’s truck farming operation. He gained further experience working at local supermarkets, where he rose from a sack boy to minor management roles.
John Harbuck, a knifemaker since 1975, operates from a small shop in south Alabama. His knives have been sold in most of the 50 states (including Alaska and Hawaii), Canada, several African countries, and Saudi Arabia. He is a member of the Professional Knifemakers Association.
