I was born and raised in Krasnodar. I remember my father made kitchen knives when I was a child, maybe it had some effect on me. Once I tried to do the same at my leisure time and succeeded without tools. Then I’ve got a computer and Internet and that really helped me to develop in making knives. So currently I‘m engaged in that.
Generally I make stick tang knives, but I also do full tangs sometimes. I prefer to do bright coloring of handles. I like to do etching of various ornaments and give preference to powder steels, as the phrase goes I keep up with the times!
p.s. I do not make cold arms!
