My name is Dmitry Malakhov.
My first knife I made at the age of 12 all by my own. I ruined my grandfather's handsaw for the blade and cut a fair piece of laundry cord from grandmother's stock for the handle wrap. It was simple yet good for some jobs.
It has been in use many years since. At the age of 20 I was introduced to the knife makers' world and started to make art knifes and learned from best craftsmen.
Many of my knifes are in private collections.
Many years ago I started my attempts to reproduce ancient WOOTZ steel. It is a hard road but I had few
achievements to be proud of.
I continued to make knives after I moved to
the U.S. and I am very proud to incorporate some Russian knife making traditions in my works.
My desire is to introduce something unique and personal in every knife.
I readily use engraving, carving, inlay and other techniques and continue to learn from the best.
