One Sun Knife Design

Lorenzo Lollis was born in Florence, SC (of Native American Choctaw, Cherokee and African ancestry) 66 years ago and raised on the South Shore of Long Island, N.Y.

Some 15 years ago, Lorenzo along with his wife, Sandra (Sam), his partner and right hand in One Sun Knife Designs, relocated to Alpharetta, GA, in the beautiful foothills of the North Georgia Mountains.  Between them, they share five grown children and fifteen grandchildren and one great scattered over a number of states.

After a serious car accident years ago sidelined his career in construction, Lorenzo turned to his first love, music.  He plays acoustic and electric guitar, bass, keyboard and anything else he can get his hands on.  For years he composed music in his home studio, until a computer crash left him high & dry, with no creative outlet.

He turned to his wood shop, where he began whittling and experimenting with some designs he had in his head, first making them out of wood and then slowly experimenting with metals.

Lorenzo is very creative to start with, but when it comes to his knife designs, he is self taught. He learned to forge by watching YouTube videos, burning through a number of pieces of clothing and burning out some power tools. His learning continues as his designs become more intricate and evolve. The final results are what you’re seeing here!
