I’m a Romanian blacksmith and knife maker. After 20 years of journalism, the last 12 working as editor-in-chief at Romanian Photo Magazine, I decided that I want to focus all my energy into knife making, a passion that I had since childhood. I work using old, traditional methods, but also the latest technology of heat-treatment (electronical owen) and special materials for creating high-end knives. I like using carbon steel (many types), but also stainless steels like RWL 34, N690, M390, damasteel and suminagashi metallurgical powder.
Although I put a lot of effort in creating new and intricate designs, I make my knives to be used. I don’t think that a knife should be exposed, but put to good use, no matter how beautiful it may look. For any special order, please contact me directly. Shipping & handling for all knives is free.
