In the 1990’s I repaired cars, worked on a construction site and created all kinds of articles of daily use out of metal. Metal working is my profession and at some point or another it was inevitably to make a knife. In the initial stages I made simple knives for hunting and the kitchen to keep my family above water. The buyers liked my knives because they were well crafted, stable and durable. Through word-of-mouth advertising more and more people become aware of my knives, I produced more and I invested a great part of my income in new and better machines.I rebuilt a lot of old machines and improved them again and again. I have developed some of them on my own, because I wanted features, which normal industrial machines could not offer. I don’t compromise, if a machine isn’t ideal, it will be rebuilt until it produces the results I require. Optimization is a constant and never ending process. I prefer the frame lock, because it is a simple and very stable system. The market decides what will be produced, but I prefer straight-lined and simple solutions. Reliability and stability are important to me. One should be able to rely on one’s knife.
