My name is Phillip Patton. I’m 29 years old, and I’ve been a full time bladesmith for about 6 years (as of 2011).
For fun I like to build things. My current interest is musical instruments. So far I’ve made 11 guitars, 6 bowed psalteries, 6 hammer dulcimers, and 3 mountain dulcimers in the last 2 years. A harp and a couple violins are some more I’d like to build soon.
