About Curtis Haaland

My Name is Curtis Haaland, I am 23 years old, and my business name is Free Hill Blades. I've always loved art, knives, and working with my hands. All these things have been part of my life separately until I started this. Art is in my blood, my dad is a potter, my mom is an art teacher and photographer, and both my sisters are excellent artists themselves. When I found out about the craft of knife making it put all three of my passions together. I fell in love with the craft the first time I tried it at age 17 and have been doing it ever since. I'm 23 now and I've been working full time at this for almost two years now. It's not hard doing this everyday when I have an overpowering passion to learn and grow. Every project is an opportunity to try something new and learn. When making these knives the priorities rank in this order utility, ergonomics, and aesthetics. These three things are what I have to consider when designing and executing that design. These knives are tools and art. I do hope whether you buy a knife or not that this will show you what chasing a passion can bring you.
