About the maker:
Rellstab got his start knifemaking by tinkering around in his garage at the age of 12. He refined his curiosity by "watching pretty much every knifemaking YouTube video out there." The Pinedale high school senior now has a real life mentor, Kevin Pacey, who has been teaching him how to forge Damascus Steel. Rellstab says, "With knifemaking, you have to stay within certain parameters, it needs to be usuable. But with Damacus, the possibilities are endless and it just allows for so much creativity. I have a journal filled with ideas.
