    I'm here in Jacksonville. If you look in the Knives annuals you'll see a list of makers by state. The last copy I looked at they had me as J'ville, Florida, instead of Oregon.

    I probably forgot some active makers.
    And there are a dozen more that are occasional makers, some just getting started

    You're welcome to visit my shop and make a knife, using my tools and materials. I'm just across the river from Portland in Vancouver, WA. I'm traveling a lot right now, but should have some free time in September. Let me know.

    I am also looking for an Oregon knifemaker to repair/restore an heirloom Remington R1123 pocketknife. It is a pretty valuable knife but in fairly rough condition and I would like to have it mildly customized with a Damascus blade to replace the one that's broken. I'm in Tualatin, but would be willing to travel an hour or more to find the right craftsman. Any takers?

    AHHHH.. the spoils of the NorthWest...Considering how many companys reside here there is a small army of makers that are employed in variuos aspects of the cutlery business here! Heres some full timers...Allen Warren, Shane Siebert, Tim Galyean, A C Richards.
