Larens Detloff was a part-time associate with a group of knife makers at David Boye’s studio in Davenport. As the years went by, the knife making grew and became more popular with those looking for better quality and design. The knife makers diversified following their own design concepts, evolving new techniques with materials and the addition of artistic acid etching and engraving. The knife work here represents various periods of Laren’s work that have evolved out of those early years in Davenport.
