I never thought I'd be passionate about a knife, or art work on a greeting card.  That was before we met Scott Richardson and Aki Yamamoto and became familiar with their work. 
My Cariboo Blades knife and ulu are my extra hands in the kitchen.  These knives are like old friends now, so comfortable and always with a good sharp edge :)  I would not be without them. 

Scott makes the most comfortable, finely balanced, practical kitchen knives and an amazing range of hand forged woodworking tools.   Aki carves, paints and creates; drawing inspiration from the natural world and the changing landscape around her.  Her handmade cards are truly delightful and beautiful.  Printed on recycled cardstock with recycled paper envelopes.  Framed originals of Aki's artwork is also available.  Both Scott and Aki will also do custom work on request.

Aki, Scott and their young son; Kai live in the isolated boreal forest on the edge of the Chilcotin plateau in British Columbia.  They live sustainably.  They walk their talk.  We encourage you to visit their website and their Fireweed Blog.
Folks often ask if David also crafts ring boxes.  With Touch Wood Rings and the stewardship of our 50 acres, there are simply not enough weeks in a year.  So, we searched far and wide until we found a craftsman who we feel really good about recommending to you.  David and I are so pleased to meet Al and his partner Marilyn and we know you will be too.

If you are looking for a beautifully hand crafted ring box for your Touch Wood Ring; Al Ladd; master box maker, is your man.
