was designated by the Arkansas Heritage Commission as the
Treasure for my work in the traditional art form. The ceremony was in
May of 2007.
I am taking orders on the ALT stamped knives. There will be less than 12 made each year. They will be numbered and dated.
As with all of my knives the ALT model will have the Registration certificate.
If you would like to place an order for an ALT stamped knife, simply send me an e-mail or call me at 870-845-5173 and place your order.
