Charles Wallingford is an old-school knife maker from Union Kentucky. His blades are hand forged with traditional handle materials. Most I have handles have been antler. He also makes a fine long rifle, but I suspect his passion is his blades.
A man can’t have too many knives; I have a fair number. My favorite knife was made by Charlie.
You can see Charlie and his knives at numerous shows, Friendship, and CLA. Below is his web address with contact information:
