Hello! My name is Colin Paterson. I began my art career on the kitchen table of my parent's home when I was just a boy. I have always loved to make things with my hands, and I have always loved art and making art. Making knives is truly an art form. It is actually just another extension and just the most recent of my artistic endeavors. I hope to build a fine collection of unique custom knives as well as continue to customize many factory knives.
I worked as a fine artist in both graphic art and sculpture. I am now retired and I am enjoying my time combining my love of knives with my love of creating art by customizing existing knives, and building new ones from scratch. Most of the customizing work I do involves the great American art form of scrimshaw, which I love to do and work diligently to perfect. To learn more about me, please view some of my completed work. Also make sure to sign my guest book and check back often, as I will continue to add more pieces as they are completed.
