Jesus Caylor


Jesus is the middle Caylor son. He daylights as a Supervisor at a San Antonio warehouse. In his spare time, he visits the family forge to work on projects and assist Reforged students with sharpening their knives. He is the guy professional knife makers seek to sharpen their knives. He is known for sharpening a blade so well it cut clean through a leather sheath as it slid into place.
