Justin Barnhart

CEO / Founder

Justin learned to play golf at age 7 in Texas with the help of his Grand Father, and three Uncles. He has a deep passion for the game and growing it, so he's always looked for a way to give back. Currently he is an Executive at PACCAR. Justin graduated from University of Texas at Arlington in 2009, and received his MBA from University of Dallas in 2015. Favorite course played so far is Torrey Pines.

Eric Ochs

Partner / Designer

Eric is a Professional Custom Knife Maker based out of Oregon. He grew up carrying a pocket knife since he was six and has collected knives ever since. This always seemed natural for Eric since he spent much of his time outdoors, climbing his first mountain at age 9 and many of the Cascade Mountains including Mt. Hood, Adams & Rainer. Eric also grew up backpacking, hiking, rafting and fishing, and after college began hunting and surf kayaking.
