My name is Dwight Hazelett. I worked for Randall Made knives for thirteen years and have had my own shop also but decided to try something different a few years back and got out of knifemaking and got rid of most of my equipment.
After trying a few different things I have come to the conclusion that I am a better knifemaker than anything else I have ever done. Now all I gotta do is put another shop together.
I have read a few of the post and especially liked the one on the trials and satisfactions of being a knifemaker. For me it seems that making the knives is the easy part, finding people who want to buy them ain't always easy.
BTW, I am from Ocoee Florida so if there are any knifemakers in Central Florida who need a hand or have any equipment for sale or just want to get together for a cold beer give me a shout or an email or whatever.
