Zack Jonas is a master bladesmith working out of his studio in rural New Hampshire. An artist since his earliest recollections, he found his way into an introductory course on custom knife making taught by JD Smith. Zack took JD's class back-to-back 8 times and haunted the workshop in between meetings. He eventually became JD's apprentice and joined the American Bladesmith Society.

In 2012 Zack and his wife Karina moved from Massachusetts to New Hampshire so that Zack could open his own studio. That same year he earned the rank of Journeyman Smith and joined the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen. 

Zack earned the rank of Master Smith in 2019, making him one of only 120 in the world.
