Ballard Midyette

Viking Knifeworks

I’ve made things from a very early age.  My parents instilled in me a deep appreciation for the arts with painting and music lessons.  I had a stoic Texan grandfather who introduced me to knives and the outdoors.



I recieved a BM in Jazz Studies from Virginia Commonwealth University and I perform, compose, and arrange.  If you would like to check out my songs, just click here.

I enjoy good stories, strong fires, excellent company, and tasty meals.  An adventure every so often is good too.

If you have any questions, or would like me to craft you a knife, or would just like to say hello, feel free to shoot me an email at
