David Mary Custom

I like knives, and once upon a time, although I was willing to save, a top maker heard my income, and had nothing more to say. So I became a maker myself. Do you like knives? They're good for your mental health! I'll make you one, go ahead and drop me a line. Deny a man a custom knife? It ought to be a crime.
