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 Leather” - brown :
Leather is a unique material.
It requires care, but if well cared for, it will return the favor for many years of service.
For everyday use, the "black Protector standard" is perfect. But what to do when we have to deal with neglected leather?
The best known grease for leather is mink oil.
But I have found its equivalent in the plant world! It is macadamia oil. It makes up 25% of the composition of the Protector Leather care blend.
Oils that nourish the leather with lots of vitamins and fatty acids like sweet almond, argan and others. All cold-pressed, unrefined. You'll also find shea butter and pure lanolin, which are great for lubricating your leather.
It contains 3 natural waxes of varying hardness and melting point, including beeswax.
A large amount of propolis will protect against mold.
The rest is a proprietary blend of "Protector base".
"Leather" in total contains as many as 13 premium ingredients that will perfectly nourish and protect your leathers.
"Brown Protector" is 100% natural and can come in contact with food!
Extend from the stick to 1-2mm.
It is very efficient, just apply a small amount and spread with your finger. It is best applied at room temperature and left for a few minutes to absorb. For very old and dry leather, you can repeat the process until you get satisfactory results. At the end, you can polish it preferably with a cotton cloth.
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.
