I started knives made with a year.
Knives do just learning. Cases doing for about 10 years.
For some reason, took up the matter.
Knives were without covers – that engaged in the manufacture of covers. And knives – it became interesting.
What style you prefer and why.
Style prefer practical. Knives mainly hunting, hunter himself since 1998.
What materials are used and why.
For covers – skin only natural. For handles and decoration – horn, bone, wood. The skin was taking on Voznesensky, Bulehovskom plant.
What kind of target audience oriented.
The main buyers – hunters. But anyone with a knife needs a good cover. Even the kitchen knife with a holster on the road do not take. Knife like diamonds need cutting.
Do knife Makes itself in whole or in cooperating with blacksmiths and other craftsmen.
Copyright blades take Peter Fedoryak, Eugene Shtokalova. I work with from the masters Konstantinovka, Donetsk. Their blade – my finishing. Sometimes the shape of the blade pick handle, sometimes vice versa.
Is this the main occupation.
This is the main job.
Technician-Electrician, but for a long time I do not work in their specialty.
After organizers knife show “Steel Edge”.
