Daniel Aubihl was born on May 25, 1957 in Central Ohio. He began creating rifles, tomahawks and knives in 1975. He apprenticed to Mark Bokenkamp from 1975-1977. He also went to various blacksmith seminars in the late 1970's and early 1980's that also helped to further his craft. He was a part-time artisan until 2001 when he began building full-time.
Daniel's work includes early Lancaster and Virginia rifles, Ohio rifles, pipe tomahawks, folding knives and whitesmith/blacksmith. He also makes gold and damasus jewelry. His trademark is a pointed cross. Over his career, he has made around 15 full stock rifles, a few fowlers, 8 half stock rifles, numerous pipe tomahawks and knives. Daniel states that "very little of what I have created was made for anyone but myself and mostly for friends."
