Each gift knife from the Zlatoust masters is a vivid example of handmade and inspired collective creativity. Weapon makers, artists and engravers worthily keep and develop the Zlatoust traditions of metal decoration. When creating each item, they combine talent, creativity and a high level of performance.
Handmade knife is a classic men’s gift. Since ancient times, it was customary to present a knife for birth. Knife has always been a sacred item, an object of power, a talisman and a guard. Today, the knife is able to become an interior decoration in the home or office of a worthy person who never rests on what has been achieved, seeks to fully realize his/her creative potential and is always open to new worlds and fields of activity.
Damask steel blade is made by alloying metal packets. The knife hilt is cast and carved from blue resin. Resin is difficult to process, it quickly clogs pores in abrasive tools. Thus preventing it from machining. But falling into the hands of talented Zlatoust masters, we get an amazing hilt, polished to a shine with a deep, cosmic pattern. All-metal scabbard provides for superior grip and ease of carrying. The scabbard is decorated with handmade engraving. The master cuts a thin layer of metal from the scabbard surface creating a unique pattern on them. He has to work using a microscope, it is a delicate and painstaking work requiring concentration and patience.
The knife is placed in a stylish stylish wooden box and is ready for gifting.
