After growing up in Pittsburgh steel country, Andrew Welton attended grad school where they spent a decade studying the archaeology of medieval spearheads. Dr. Welton has measured and photographed hundreds of medieval blades in European museums, and uses this knowledge to create historical reproductions as well as historically inspired kitchen knives and original art.
