Kevin has had a strong interest in knives and knifemaking since he was young. In October 2010, he participated in a weekend class here at Tharwa Valley Forge and was hooked from that moment.

With the assistance of Karim, he gathered the tools and knowledge to start knifemaking in his own garage. Keen to grow as a knifemaker, Kevin volunteered to assist at Tharwa Valley Forge and helped out with classes for a number of years. Over that time Kevin has grown as a knifemaker and is now a highly sought-after teacher in his own right.

Kevin is a self-sufficient knifemaker who conducts forging, heat treating, handle construction and sheath making. Kevin also makes his own Damascus steel and enjoys the freedom of being to explore creating various patterns through this process.

Kev operates his own workshop at kevsforge.com
