To me the knife is a form of expression, and since I began in 1979, I have attached great importance to form, design and personal expression through the knife.

It is a kind of meditation, where I seek to catch the beauty of the moment through Knife making.

Over the years, I have worked hard to find the simplicity and essence in the knife.
This means sometimes I work with just the two elements, black and glossy, or one blade, one piece of wood and a piece of leather.
