Boyd Ashworth is a custom knifemaker whose workshop is located in Powder Springs, Georgia. He is a Journeyman Smith with The American Bladesmith Society. He says, "I sold my first custom knife in 1993. Much of my knifemaking education has come from the Mastersmith's teaching at the annual Jim Batson Blade Symposium. I enjoy forging my own Damascus steel. My specialties are turtle folders with mosaic turtle Damascus, locking Damascus folders, along with fighters, hunters and gents. I also offer filework and exotic handle materials. My interest in knives has been lifelong. During my youth as an Eagle Scout going hunting, fishing and camping, I developed an appreciation for an expertly crafted knife." He has a vivid, creative imagination and a flair for incorporating organic and animal forms into his custom art knives with names such as "Pocket Goblin" and "One Arm Bandit." Boyd's folding turtle knife won back-to- back "Best Miniature Folder" awards at the Blade Show in 2001 and 2002. He is the designer of the CRKT Ashworth Turtle series.
