TAPROOT  Knives is a one-man shop where I design and build utility and  presentation-grade cutlery. The bulk of my work is fixed-blade knives including hunters, filet knives and kitchen cutlery.

Working from my designs or from a customer’s design and specs, I take sole authorship of each step in the process—including heat treating and blade tempering.

Each TAPROOT knife is hand-crafted with a focus on function, fit and superior cutting and edge-holding performance.

My goal is to make the last knife better than the one before it!
