Michael Z. Williamson is an expert with over thirty years experience in the crafting and repair of cutlery and armor. He started with an interest in quality swords, which were not commercially available at the time. The obvious solution was to build his own. The first efforts were crude, heavy, and rather inelegant, but progress was made.

While serving in the U.S. Air Force in an engineering unit, he began repairing and sharpening knives for other unit members. Since leaving active duty and transferring to the reserves, cutlery has been his sole occupation.

Whether selling at trade shows, conventions, or his store; fine kitchen knives, basic pocketknives, high-end folders, military tactical blades, historical reproductions of swords, antiques or custom pieces; cleaning, sharpening, repair, or restoration; he is available to serve your needs.
