Robert has been fascinated by metalwork and traditional crafts particularly in how they connect to history, since childhood. Robert began studying blacksmithing under James Hoffman learning the American colonial style of blacksmithing. He then went on to learn the craft of bladesmithing joining the American Bladesmith’s Society (ABS) where he hopes to achieve the rank of master smith. Robert works full time out of his shop in Chaska Minnesota creating knives, woodworking tools, and historic reproductions.
