Russell Montgomery, I started Serenity Knives in Jan of 2010. After having a passion for collecting and using knives a majority of life. I sought out Murray Carter and over 2 years spent several weeks learning the traditional Japanese way of bladesmithing. After honing those skills I took several weeks of workshops with the American Bladesmithing Society and learned the Appalachian Mountain way of doing things. I now use a balanced combination of these two very divergent techniques and way of design to build the best knives I can.
