My name is Jesse and I am so glad you are checking out  Here is a bit about me…

Even though I enjoy focusing on vintage knives, my career has centered around education.  I have taught high school science for 20+ years and continue to enjoy the many interactions with students and other teachers.

I am married and love spending time with our two children and watching them grow.  They certainly keep us busy!

I have always enjoyed fishing (salmon, bass, etc) but have recently started to fish for trout in the cold streams and rivers of Northern Michigan.

Brown Trout caught in 2023

What is around the next bend?

As a child, my parents would bring me to antique shows and flea markets and I soon found myself looking for pocket knives to add to my growing collection.  I enjoyed learning about the history of the companies in some of my knife books.

About 20 years ago I began buying and selling knives on eBay and I continue this day.  In 2019, I started to provide a place where collectors (both new and experienced) could find out information and also find knives for their own collections.
