Karen Dayawon was born and raised in Queens, NY, a borough of New York City, and attended LaGuardia Community College where she was a business major.

Karen has worked at Bud Nealy Knifemaker, Inc. since 1997 during which time, due to her interests and capabilities, her duties have evolved from mostly office work to mainly shop work.  The myriad tasks Karen performs in any given week include sheath molding and construction of sheath attachments, handle construction, steel profiling and logoing the knives.

Her artistic eye and attention to detail have become a great asset to Bud in the knifemaking process and her sharp wit provides a welcome relief when the stress level is high.
