Alton Ferguson has always lived in Monroe County, KY. He is a husband and a father of two girls. He has farmed his land and raised cattle along with various crops such as tobacco and alfalfa all his adult life. In between the times he could not get into the fields, he dabbled in making furniture, wood working, metal working and making his kitchen and hunting knives. Over the years, he honed down the process and started going to crafting shows. People showed an interest in wanting his knives so he started to work on design and he continues to always improve the quality of his product. His knives are mostly comprised of high-carbon steel and are made like the old-time knives people remember from the past. He strives to make them functional and beautiful while bringing the old back so it can be rediscovered and appreciated by more and more people.
