Pat Patterson has been a knifemaker since 1991.  He's a member of the American Bladesmith Society as an apprentice smith.  Visiting the shop of Johnny Stout several years ago inspired him to become a knifemaker.  He tries to create a high quality blade that will please and satisfy the user, and one that he would carry for himself. 
He builds straight knives and folders using 440C and ATS-34 steel for blades.  His grounds are hollow grind and flat grind.  Handle materials include Stag, presentation grade Stabilized Woods, Fossilized Ivory, Micarta, and G-10.  For more information you can call Pat at 830-234-3586 or E-mail him at
