JW Randall- ABS Master Smith

JW has been in the welding/steel fabrication business for 37 years. He has worked on everything from building drilling rigs to industrial contracting. The creative side of him has pulled me around to artistic blacksmithing. JW does inside ironwork in homes such as stairs, railings, entrance doors and gates. He also make 30 ton hydraulic presses for knifemakers.

“I started making knives in 1998 and was honored to become an ABS Master Smith in 2003. It’s hard for me to believe I have been a Master Smith for 15 years. I am also a big outdoorsman and I love to bow hunt everything. I also love to spend time with my family, who has always supported me in knifemaking. God has blessed me to be creative and work with my hands and he gets the glory. Recently I became the International Forged In Fire Champion. I love Damascus steel and the challenge it is to make and making knives that a customer can cherish.”
