Mark is an award winning woodcarver and has been carving for a little over twenty years. He is a member of The National WoodCarvers Association as well as many local woodcarving clubs. A self-taught carver, who is well known for his distinctive clean-cut style of carving. He enhances his self-taught style by hosting and attending seminars often taught by professional carvers. Mark enjoys carving wood spirits, caricatures, Christmas ornaments, elves, gnomes, and Santas.

Mark resides in Lexington, South Carolina with his wife, Tina of 25 years and currently carves as a hobby since he is employed full-time as an Assistant Supervisor for the Maintenance Division of Lexington County.  His love of carving began more than twenty-five years ago when he attended a carving meeting in a small basement of a church in Alton, Illinois.  At this meeting he was inspired with a love of carving that has never died.  His first attempt at carving produced a three-legged (because he cut off the fourth leg) “Pluto” which he still has because he believes in remembering the journey that takes you from a starting point to where you are today.  Often times when new carvers meet Mark and remark on his work, he will show them “Pluto” and remind them that learning to carve is an ever evolving adventure.

Mark also known as the Carolina Carver and Rich & Holli Smithson owners of Helvie Knives have been working together to bring out a new line of Signature Series knives. Mark’s unique carving style is done with a longer than normal Helvie Rough out Blade with more of a point on it to reach into tight spots by chocking up on the blade. Helvie Knives is proud to introduce four Mark Akers Signature Series Knives. The Mark Akers Knife is custom burned with Mark’s signature on the handle and his logo of a Santa. On the flip side is the words “Carolina Carver” burned on there, the end of the handle is number in series as to the order it was made. The handles are made of natural wood. Feel free to contact him or send him a message.
