About

I approach knife making with humbleness. I do believe that every craft should be done properly and with care – only then can it truly delight the craftsman.


Man’s most faithful helper

Although looking quite simple, the knife embodies a lot of craftsmanship, deep knowledge, and even history. Just imagine the wide variety of materials that are processed in many different ways to form a well-working whole. This simple, yet amazing tool has been a faithful helper of the man since ages and it’s capable of helping, creating, but also destroying.

All of my knives are made in a traditional manner and, to a great extent, I rely solely on my hands and simple tools. I’m continuously working on deepening my knowledge. First, I observe the old master knifemakers and soak in their wisdom and skills, which I then thoroughly test myself and transform them into my own processes and methods.
