The Mastersmith’s Mastersmith!

I met Jim Crowell at either Warren Osborne’s First Cutting School or at the ABS Hammer In, I can’t remember which.  He made a lasting impression on me.  He is a true renaissance man.  He has been an American Bladesmith Mastersmith for 25 years.  He was one of the original teachers at the Bill Moran School of Bladesmithing in Washington, Arkansas.  He is truly the Mastersmith’s Mastersmith.  He makes a beautiful knife and has several cutting competition champion awards to his credit.  When I saw that he had made a set of instructional videos, I had to repost them.  If anyone is new to knifemaking or bladesmithing, this is the set to buy.  I wholeheartedly endorse his DVDs.  I have great respect for Jim Crowell.  Here are some examples of his work:

Jim’s contact info is:

I am a prosecutor at the Ellis County and District Attorney's Office and a knife enthusiast. Currently I sharpen, repair, and make custom knives. I also make sheaths for knives. My fascination with knives has lasted a lifetime.
