Weapons of the American Frontier


My goal is to accurately recreate the most iconic and prized weapons of the American Frontier and pay homage to those who originally made and used them.


I aspire to help people of today understand what roles these weapons played and the importance of them in everyday living of the period.


Over the last 10 years and yet today, I continue to research and refine the art of building accurate period weapons for collectors, museums and history enthusiasts.


In addition to of the honor of having my recreations on display at various North American museums, my weapons have been featured by publications such as Muzzleloader and Muzzle Blast and most recently I was a finalist on Season 3 of History Channel’s Forged in Fire.
