Good day you all, My name is José Antonio Herreros. I am a knife and pocket knives artisan from Spain. It has been more than 44 years when I started making my own knives (when I was 13 years old) and today I can proudly name myself as an "amateur" (everyday you learn something new) artisan. I have been working with the most famous and finest cutlery brands from Spain, thanks to that, I have been awarded with the most important titles inside the Spanish handmade cutlery. Recently, I decided to make my own webpage https://www.artesaniaherreros.es/en/ since the Spanish handmade cutlery is dissapearing. Sadly, I have to start from cero since I have no photos (or the ones I have are really old) of my oldest creations, but, I try to keep the webpage updated with more products (with quality photos), videos, etc. so one day I could proudly look at it as my own catalogue. I have attached you a few photos of my latest products, they are just a little glimpse of my daily work, but I hope you like it. Thanks a lot to everyone who told me on facebook about this marvelous forum, and thanks everyone for letting me part of this awesome community! Greetings from Spain - José Antonio Herreros, Knives and folding knives artisan from Spain.
Cliff Morris, my mentor, made the local paper in Winnemucca, Nevada. My Dad came up to visit and brought me a copy of the article. I hunted down the online version: http://news4nevada.com/Content/NEWS/NEWS-Humboldt-County/Article/Artisan-Cliff-Morris-a-man-of-many-skills-talents/36/171/24280 Cliff is an amazingly talented man. Every time I visit, I find something new he's working on. Should you ever visit his shop, I have one word of warning: Do not even mention the words "stainless steel." That phrase and the metal it applies to are strictly forbidden. If it doesn't rust, he won't allow it. As for the article's photos, George Janacek is a photographer who captures people in the American West, and the author is Mac Hedges, another knife maker, and also my Dad (and an author in his spare time) All nepotism aside, I thought this was a great article showcasing just a few of the talents of a fantastically creative man, and a good teacher. Every time I go "home," when I'm done fixing the family's computers, laptops, Ipads, and every other gizmo that needs fixing, I go to Cliff's, with a collection of whatever I'm working on. And I learn what I need to do better, what I've done right, and what I can do next. Anyway, just bragging on my mentor. I thought y'all might be interested.
