Ken Hall

Ken Hall Knives

Waynesville, NC

As an engineer in the energy industry in Washington, DC, Ken had a grand view of the US Capitol; he left that view behind for a rural home in the Great Smoky Mountains and a new career making knives as a journeyman bladesmith. Ken has gone from the boardroom to the forge room, where the rewards of being a bladesmith are not measured in monetary gains or power grabs, but in honest, simple satisfaction of creating functional works of art.
