Kris describes himself as a Farm Family Man, an anomaly in the family of his birth. He grew up in the city, but loves the woods. In Kris’ words, “I guess I’m just your average country guy — nothing special. Lucky for me, I fell in love with a big time country girl, Amy Bell! Together, we have been able to build a wonderful life together for our family.”

Kris goes on to say, “By trade, I am a contractor. That makes all of the farm building that we do around here a lot easier, especially since my wife is also a builder. I am also a self taught knife maker. Knife making is something I truly enjoy doing. I like that I can take a basic piece of metal and craft it into a beautiful, useful and essential tool.”
