I am Ralph Turnbull, member of the Knifemakers Guild since 1978. I became a full time (no other source of income) knifemaker in 1980. I am what is known as a veteran knifemaker, altho I am a military vet, in the knifemaking field it only means that I have been at it for a long time. In my case a VERY long time.
All of my grinding is done free hand with no fixtures of any kind. I have been fortunate to have won 16 knife making awards at various knife shows which means that you can be reasonably confident that you will be getting a really good knife.
PayPal is the preferred method of payment, if you do not have a paypal account, I can send you an invoice and you can pay with your credit card, this is all done at no extra charge to you. I also pay for shipping and insurance. My email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
I am currently completely sold out of fixed blade knives but I expect to have some new ones in a few weeks (it is now march 1st) so check back often. I also intend to sell some pieces that i have collected over the last 5 or 6 decades.
Questions are welcomed and will be answered quickly. Hope you find something you like.
These are the last two awards I recieved. Both for making the best folding knife at the show.
