Sheffield England with it's great history is known for centuries to produce fine steel tools.

By the 14th century Sheffield was noted for the production of knives, and by 1600, overseen by the Company of Cutlers in Hallamshire, it had become the second center of cutlery production in England after London. In the 1740s the crucible steel process was improved by Sheffield resident Benjamin Huntsman, allowing a much better production quality.

As early as the 14th century Sheffield was noted for the production of knives:

By 1600 Sheffield was the main centerof cutlery production in England outside London, and in 1624 The Company of Cutlers in Hallamshire was formed to oversee the trade.[58] Examples of water-powered blade and cutlery workshops from around this time can be seen at the Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet and Shepherd Wheel museums in Sheffield.

Around a century later, Daniel Defoe in his book A tour thro' the whole island of Great Britain, wrote:

This town of Sheffield is very populous and large, the streets narrow, and the houses dark and black, occasioned by the continued smoke of the forges, which are always at work: Here they make all sorts of cutlery-ware, but especially that of edged-tools, knives, razors, axes, chisels, saws and nails.

Excerpt from Wikipedia

At 11 years old, in the summer of 1960, I had 8 different part time fobs. Mostly relating tonewspapers. Some yard maintenance and some babysitting. At first, I walked my routes in a small, at the time, in the outer edges or LA county. Eventually I was able to purchase a new Western Flyer bicycle form Western Auto on the payment plan with my mother cosigning. It was $5.00 a month for 10 months. I loved the bike.

At 16 years old I left home and worked full time in a metal fabrication department for a company that made patio furniture. I was the second fastest production operator on the brake and punch out presses in the plant. The Forman was the fastest. Also crushed 4 digits on my hands.

At 19 years old I was a Sargent in charge of an Airborne Infantry Squad which had a M-60 machine gun crew. I was sent to the Republic of Viet Nam. Was wounded in the end of 67. When I came home I couldn't find a comfortable place to work so started my own business. In the late 60s and early 70s I made leather products, sold to a few stores and on the streets of San Francisco to the tourists. One of the first shops I sold to, when they had only two stores, was the Gap.

After about 10,000 belts and a good number of bags, satchels and key fobs I moved on to Jewelry. I started selling my silver as a San Francisco Street Artist (San Francisco Street Artist License No 28)

As I got into gold and precious gems I moved on to art shows first in Florida then eventually up the entire east coast along with the mid-west. Atlanta, Virginia Beach, New York City, all the big towns in Ohio, then on to Detroit, Ann Arbor, Chicago, and many cities in between then back down south. While doing the touring I received over 70 awards for design and craftsmanship. By the time I was 40 I had my own jewelry store and became a Graduate Gemologist (GIA) in Delray Beach Florida. I designed, manufacturing, sold and appraising jewelry for 1100 families. During that time, I designed, developed, and taught the jewelry program for the Boca Raton Museum. I retired from the store (sold out at 50) and only took on custom work or one-of-a-kind pieces for special clients.

I moved back to Colorado (was born in Denver) about 10 years ago. Yes, I'm no spring chicken. For the last several years I have been creating works in wood and have plans to combine gems with fine wood products. In the mean time I started collecting antique woodworking tools. I studied and worked with many a vintage tool. Realizing I could find good tools at sales and bring them to the public at a lower price that I had been paying.

Please feel free to contact me for any questions or requests.
