The Rise of Dedicated Protectors.
The rise of Protectors was not quick, it was years of practice, hours of testing and reading. Each was created with care and, importantly, the right knowledge.
Protector standard is like an adjustable wrench. It can handle most screws.
But sometimes it happens that you need an extension to the wrench to unscrew a difficult screw, so dedicated Protectors act as an extension.
Leather will condition even very old, dry leather.
Blade will protect strongly working blades.
Exotic will support even the most sophisticated woods.
The Protector family will meet all your needs.
„Protector Blade” - gray :
Everyone has encountered the problem of rust on the blade. Oils alone are not always enough to protect them.
A much better option is "Protector standard, black".
On the other hand, when you know that you will work hard on your tool, put the knife away for a long time in a cabinet or drawer I give you "grey Blade Protector"!
40% of its composition is a mixture of "Steel Protect". A large dose of the hardest carnauba wax straight from Brazil and the best for steel jojoba oil! A powerful dose of protection.
Also contains beeswax to balance the hardness and my proprietary "Protector base" blend.
"Blade" is much harder than "black" and forms a more dense coating. Please note, it can be brittle at lower temperatures, keep in mind that you only need to slide it out of the stick 1mm to work with it freely and without problems.
Don't worry, it is 100% natural and can come in contact with food!
Slide it out of the stick to 1mm.
Apply evenly on the blade, polish with a cloth or paper tissue and you are done. After use, touch up the coating to protect the steel from resting. Even in a moist sheath it will be safe.
I've liked knives since childhood, with my uncle systematically encouraging this interest of mine. Though he didn’t collect the knives himself, he had quite a lot of them, as I can recall from my childhood memories. Yes, childhood memories, because I was given my first knife when I was about seven or eight years old, and from that moment forward I was presented with more of them from time to time.
This “Knifemaker Adventure” started at the end of April 2015, when I’ve “laid” my first cuts. My first knife "Borsuk" was created in August of the same year and is still in use of one of my hunter friends.
However, before I had started making knives, I watched and read about the subject for over a year. I was on the "knives.pl" forum practically every day.
It all started with YouTube videos and the first inspiration from Mr. Michał Siedlicki AK. Trollsky (I had a pleasure of meeting him in person which was, as you can probably imagine, a great experience for me).
It didn’t take long for my wife to start nagging me: “Why again with the knives? Why are you watching this? What’s the point? You’re just wasting your time!” (Currently, she’s very supportive of all of it). In the meantime, I gathered materials and tools. When I felt, that the moment has come to take action, I’ve bought a grinder that I think we all know: small and wild Dedra, and so it began.
More knives were made, alongside with the project that I'm best known for: "Sultan", and we held the first rally for "knives.pl" forum, which filled me up with positive energy.
The next rally in 2016 brought me my first big personal success: the "Dream knife" project, thanks to which, with the help from the forum community, I’ve collected a large sum of money for an orphanage. The project has been continuing for years now, and it’s taking up speed.
From this year onwards I only concern myself with knives. Despite the short training period, I've gained a lot of experience, and in a little more than a year I made over 100 knives (I have stopped counting now).
I constantly try to diverse when it comes to knives. I like exploring new kinds of them.
I work on K110 and M390 a lot, as well as with things from Elmax.
As for the handles, I love using wood and antlers.
Each wood smells differently, and I am able to differentiate individual species of wood based on its smell.
I also like G10, which I glue into Sultans in various color schemes.
On customer’s orders, I also use Micarta.
