Died in 2013, Phil was generally recognized as a very gifted knife maker. Has also has been awarded as “Best Knife Maker” during his lifetime. He was particularly known for the smooth action of his knives, with which he was ahead of his time. He made his knives with the highest precision possible with excellent fit & finish. His knives are highly appreciated, have a high demand among collectors and highly sought after. So I am proud to own one.
