My name is Lucas Gumbiner. I started into the world of knife making in the summer of 2016 at the age of 17, when my parents decided I needed a hobby. As a joke, I asked them to buy me a forge, and to my surprise they said yes. After that I spent hundreds of hours researching and asked thousands of questions in order to learn the various tools and techniques required in knifemaking.
Now in the 5 years I've been making knives, my focus has been mainly on Japanese style culinary knives, and their many forms. however I have also adopted many other styles, such as hunting/bushcraft knives, cutlery, EDC and even a Sword! With my most recent challenge and passion being high end Folding knives.
