I make blades from forgings of those masters who solely forge, and who have good recommendations in knife community for making quality products. I assemble knives from ready blades which I buy from reliable blacksmiths who guarantee the quality!
I make handles from different woods from economy to premium class. It can be ordinary oak, Amboyna, Snakewood and Ironwood. I use stabilized wood, prepare it myself. I also choose colors myself. I always make sheaths from quality vegetable leather. I use American Fiebings chemicals.
I never copy other masters’ knives, or duplicate my own works; it’s of no interest to me. I make knives cause of my heart’s calling, not for money. You can call it a paid hobby. Surely, I’m not an altruist, I won’t work for free as I appreciate my time and my labor.
p.s. I do not make cold arms!
