About me.

 

My name is Maxim Safronov.  I live in Russia and I make custom bladed weaponry.  It has been my family’s business for decades. 

 


I mostly make beautifully decorated hunting knives, but I also custom make all kinds of knives and other bladed weapons to customers requirements.   My knives are all unique and of the highest quality.  They are highly sought after by hunters, collectors and people looking for gifts or quality souvenirs.
 

 

I can make bladed weaponry in any style and size and from any material desired, including exotic collectors knives, hunting knives, daggers, swords, axes, machetes, katana, tanto, etc.  If you’re after a particular style of bladed weapons (fighting, national, collectable, fancy, gift weapons. etc.), please contact me.  I’ll be pleased to hand make a weapon you’ll be proud to own.

 

My blades are all forged from Russian aerospace high-alloy steels (similar to American 440C, D-2, CPM440V), high carbon or Damascus steels.  Each Damascus blade is forged of four types of steel and contains from 400 to 600 layers.  My blades are usually from 4 to 6 mm (1/5 inch) thick.  (1 inch is 25.4 mm).
 
I use a wide range of natural materials for making handles and sheaths: such traditional Russian materials as mounted birch bark, birch burl, box tree, walnut tree, leather, elk horn, walrus tusk, mammoth ivory, bog oak (oak that has been submerged in a bog for centuries; this wood is black), and various other woods like blackwood (Dalbergia), ebony wood (Diospyrus), etc.  When necessary all wooden parts are permeated with boiling linseed oil to make them water-repellent and reduce the likelihood of rotting.  All handles are assembled with a titanium rod inside. Even though my knives are highly decorated they are principally practical knives for practical purposes.

Birch bark handles are highly valued in Russia and the Nordic countries though they are not so well known in the rest of Europe and the USA.  These handles are made by stacking and gluing as many as 200 layers of birch bark to each other with pressing force of 500 kg.  Birch bark handle is very durable and quite warm to the touch, making it suitable for very cold climates.  The combination of birch bark and hard aluminium alloy make the handle feel ‘warm’ in cold weather.  Also a knife with a birch bark handles is usually 2-3 oz lighter than a similar knife with a brass or stainless steel guard and butt-cap.  As any hunter will tell you, the weight of your knife becomes very important when you have to walk for hours, especially in deep snow.  Also, if your knife has a birch bark handle it will not slip if your hands are greasy, oily or soapy, and this can be a significant safety feature when you skin animals or clean fish.  A birch bark handle does not absorb water and only has to be washed with soap to rejuvenate it.  Rub it several times with very fine sand paper and it will look like you just bought it.  You do not need to coat birch bark, and it always feels slightly warm and velvety.  Birch bark is also considered to have healing properties, and can help heal wounds on a hunter's hand.  Making a birch bark handle is long and laborious process yet it has been the proven choice for centuries in Russia and the Nordic countries.  You only have to hold one to feel these wonderful qualities.

 

Karelian birch (Betula verrucosa var. carelica) is one of the best choices for practical purposes, i.e. comfort and durability in all climates. It is a specific species of birch that grows in severe climate conditions of Scandinavia and neighbouring regions of northern Russia. Its wood is very stable in bitter cold and humidity changes. Karelian birch wood is also regarded as a rich, quality, precious wood especially some selected pieces. Well known pieces of art are made of Karelian birch such as sets of small pieces of furniture for the Russian Tsarina Ekaterina II (her favorite one) and one of the Fabergé eggs.
 

The leather sheath of each knife is decorated with an etching of the same animal that is engraved on the knife's butt-cap.  Each sheath is constructed from four pieces of leather, which are used to form an inner and outer layer.  The inner layer is glued together and reinforced with eight to ten stainless steel staples.  The animal drawings on the outer layer of the sheaths are not stamped but etched by hand using a pyrographic technique.  Each sheath takes several hours to decorate and because each one is individually hand carved, it is unique.
