Duncan grew up in the small town of Gardiner Montana, the northeast entrance to Yellowstone National Park. His hobbies have been shaped through living in the mountains of Montana and like many residents of Bozeman he enjoys hunting, fishing, skiing, snowmobiling, and all the other world class activities that the area has to offer. He is also a big fan of metalworking and making things with his hands, his dad was a jeweler and his mom is the director of food and beverage for Yellowstone National Park. This makes Cudaway a perfect place for Duncan to blend his backgrounds of metal working and food. Duncan's favorite Cudaway Knife is the Sanrok 7. He says "If you can only have one knife in your kitchen, this is the only knife you need!"
