Hello friends, my name is David and and this is my wife Cheryl. It's my personal pleasure to welcome you to my website displaying my collection of knives. I've carried a pocket knife ever since I was a teenager and I've been an amateur collector of knives now (December 2018) for about seven years. I thought it would be fun to share my collection with as many of you as possible, especially my grandson William who is living overseas and unable to see them right now. I'm not a professional, I'm not an expert, and I'm not a historical authority on knives. It's my retirement hobby and I still have a lot more to learn from all of you.
I grew up in North Texas and joined the U.S. Navy in February 1971. I had a 26 year career as an air traffic controller and airport/airspace administrator. In August 2016 I retired again, from the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport Board, Department of Public Safety.
Now days I'm a Grandpa and amateur writer. I've written several unpublished books about my life and my opinions on a variety of subjects. I'm a NRA member and avid handgun shooter. Cheryl and I enjoy traveling around the country, especially Texas and going to Antique Malls, Trade Days, and Flea Markets. We meet so many nice people and we always learn something from all of you.A SPECIAL DEDICATION
: To the countless number of skilled craftsmen, artisans and many entrepreneurs of the past and present, that have staked their fortunes and reputations, striving to create better quality knives for just the right task, we thank you. We thank you and honor you with collections and sites such as this to hallmark your creative work and designs.
