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 Exotic” - Green :
The most well known and loved oil for protecting wood is linseed oil. "Black Protector standard" also contains it and is great for everyday use.
However, there are species of exotic woods that like a more exotic oil.
In these situations I give you "green Protector Exotic".
The oil in question is tung oil.
It originated in China and is much thicker than linseed oil. It protects perfectly against weather conditions.
Our native species also like it.
It is the main ingredient in the "Exotic Wood Care" blend and makes up 25% of the entire Protector!
Rounding out the protection is beeswax, propolis, and a proprietary "Protector base" blend.
"Green" is also great for various types of laminates and stabilized wood, it refreshes them beautifully and gives them a new shine.
It is 100% natural and can be in contact with food!

Apply to about 1/3 of the surface to be protected and spread with your finger all over. Leave for several minutes to absorb. Remove excess with a cloth or paper tissue and polish.
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.
