My name’s Marat. My nickname is Сrying murderer.
I make knives as the mood takes me, so I don’t’ have any special preferences – stick tang, full tang, traditional, Japanese style. I also make multi-tools and any beads.
I like working with damask best of all, possibly with homogeneous steels. Sometimes I forge myself, sometimes I buy ready metal. Normally I do heat treating myself.
I like making handles from wood, having a good stock of timber species and colours I do complicated and simple mosaics from wood, using stabilized gnarls and warts plus precious wood species as well.
p.s. I do not make cold arms!
