Renowned woodcarver Rich Wetherbee and Rich & Holli Smithson owners of Helvie Knives have been working together to bring out a new Signature Series knife. Rich Wetherbee was born in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains where he befriended an old Mountain Man named "Goat". Ole Goat took the young Wetherbee under his wings and showed him the many ways to carve faces out of the stone hard pitch pine limbs. After many years of trekking to ole Goats shack in the Rocky Mountains, Wetherbee felt he had learned all he could from ole Goat, who had only one good eye. He began his next journey in life and joined up with some carvers to form what is now known as the Caricature Carvers of America. He started off teaching throughout the states and burned himself out. With his guitar in hand and Winnebago fueled he traveled around the USA singing and playing the local watering holes. After a 10 to 15 year hiatus, depends on who is telling the story, he is back and ready to pass along the philosophies of Ole Goat.
