Designer, craftsman and owner of Old Style Designs, Erik McCright, has often been called a jack of all trades. This husband and father of six, loves adventure and getting his hands dirty. Originally an exercise scientist, he grew restless with the lack of creativity this career offered and began working with GFRC and wood. Although health and fitness has remained a personal passion, Erik closed down his private gym, relocated his family from West to North Central Texas and worked as a keeper at the Ft. Worth Zoo. This was an outlet for his love of animals and desire for adventure, but that creative beast inside of him was far from satisfied. Erik's interest in knife making became a driving force until he began training obsessively in an ongoing attempt to master it. Erik is currently enjoying a full-time career creating hand crafted knives, holsters, furniture and other works from start to finish.
