We live in fast moving, short-winded times. Sooner rather than later, cheap is sexy. But quality takes time. However, disposable, cheap products dominate our markets. Only few people call for durable, substantial and top-quality craftsmanship.
Our utmost values are the appreciation of quality, the respect for materials
as well as the individual customer service, all aiming at creating supreme
one-of-a-kind products. When crafting a custom knife the blacksmith adapts
the blades hardness and stability to its final use to achieve the
optimal performance for its purpose. The customer individually chooses his
or her material for the knifes handle. As a result, we create a special
relationship between the knife an its owner who appreciates it as a decorative
as well as functional tool. Needless to say, that we no longer use knives
and swords to protect ourselves. Nevertheless, the fascination remains,
while the areas of employment for damascus steel have simply adapted to modern
As passionate knives craftsmen, again and again we enjoy the moment when our customers eyes begin to shine when looking at a damask steel blade.
