Paul’s journey into the world of knives began in the summer of 1976, during his tenure at America’s oldest cutlery store. While assisting customers and managing stock, he found himself drawn to the hunting knives department, where he encountered handcrafted treasures by esteemed artisans like Randall and Ralph Bone. The pivotal moment occurred in 1988 when Paul was introduced to his first high-end, sole-authorship blades by renowned craftsmen such as Joe Kious, Kaj Embretsen, Michael Walker, Larry Fuegen, Bill Pease, and Frank Centofante. From that moment on, he was captivated, embarking on a twelve-year journey traveling to knife shows across the country to meet his favorite makers.

At KnifeLegends, we specialize in curating top-of-the-line, investment-grade folders and fixed blades, along with knives featuring intricate engraving, catering to collectors with discerning tastes and an appreciation for exceptional craftsmanship.
