Signature Knife Series #

CCA carver Mitchell Cartledge and Rich & Holli Smithson of Helvie Knives have been working together to bring out a new line of Signature Series knives. We are proud to have Mitch join our Signature Line of knives.

Mitchell resides in Morganton, NC with his wife Page. Mitchell works in the textile industry as a development manager for a company in South Carolina.

"I began carving in the early 1980s out of necessity. Carving was a frugal way to provide a gift for my sister", Mitchell said.

Although he has not carved continuously since his first carving experience, a meeting with CCA member and author Tom Wolfe rekindled that desire to create in wood. Mitchell has since taken classes with a number of CCA members including Pete LeClair, Peter Ortel, Desiree Hajny, Gary Falin, and Harold Enlow.

Memberships include The National Wood Carvers Association, Charlotte Wood Carvers Club, The Catawba Valley Wood Carvers Club, and the Artisans Guild of N.C. Mitchell's caricature chess set was featured on the cover of the fall 2008 issue of Woodcarving Illustrated.

For Mitchell, carving has provided more than an outlet for his creativity. Mitchell feels the biggest reward has been the friendships made with others that share his interest in the art of woodcarving. Mitchell enjoys mentoring others by building upon the student's talents and interests.
