Tom Upton of T.L. Upton Knives and Little Rabbit Forge is located in Rogers, Arkansas. Upton has been interested in knives from an early age and made his first knife around 1968 (that he still has). Upton forges and uses the stock removal methods to make his knives and small hatchets. He also does his own grinding, heat treating, and leather work.
Tom forges high carbon steel, makes his own damascus and uses D2, primarily for stock removal.
An interesting note - The Little Rabbit name came from the Cheyenne/Arapaho family of Clifford Whiteman in El Reno, Oklahoma. Upton was given the name Little Rabbit at birth and his father's name was Running Rabbit.
