Jeff Bailey Signature Series Knife


$38.00




Virginia's own Jeff Bailey and Rich & Holli Smithson owners of Helvie Knives have been working together to bring out a new line of Signature Series knives.

Southwest Virginia native, Jeff Bailey, has been involved in many forms of art throughout his life. His childhood wish list always included art supplies and many hours were spent with paper and pencil in hand. After graduating high school, Jeff served his country as a Security Specialist in the United States Air Force, where he continued using his artistic ability designing squadron logos and fallen soldier memorials.

In 2008, Bailey received his first set of carving tools and a new passion began. Starting as a self-taught carver, Jeff explored the world of wood carving in its fullness. In recent years, he has taken classes from many well-known carving instructors, taking in all the knowledge and carving wisdom he can. Bailey has won numerous awards including Best and 2nd Best of Show. In addition to this, he also has received many Best of Miniature awards, a love spawning from his previous work in 28mm sci-fi sculpture and painting in which he received national recognition.

Jeff is a founding member of the Plum Creek Carving Club, helps teach carving skills, and participates in many carving demonstrations. Bailey recently celebrated his 25th year in his outdoor advertising career, currently working full-time for Lamar Outdoor Advertising. He lives in Tazewell, Virginia with his wife, Vicki, daughter, Heather and their English Springer Spaniel, Axel.

Helvie Knives is proud to add Jeff Bailey to its line of Signature Series Knives.
