About Joe

After serving our country as an army helicopter pilot for 20 years, Joe Maynard retired to become a full-time knife maker, husband, and father in Tennessee. His discovery of the knife-making craft upon his retirement completely changed his life. His creations include miniature charcuterie cleavers in mono-steel and Damascus.
Joe also travels the country with his mobile forge and crafts knives with veterans who need a sense of camaraderie and connection. This country is indebted to Joe for his decades of active duty and continued legacy of service.
