Hi, my name is Irek and I am from Poland. I do a little backsmithing and wood carving althrough I am not realy a knifemaker. I actually never completed any knife myself, besides some „kabłączek” knives; those are medieval style knives hammer shaped knives with enlonged tang that is bend to make sort of handle. And some blades I hammer shaped for frends. I don't collect knives , but over years I got some really nice works of fine craftsman. I hope I can share when I get to know forum a little better. I am curious about knives In Canada and what do you do. And also little curious about Canada In general. Knifemakers, „knife people” I met so far are a little harsh on the outside but kindest people i ever met, so might be a good place to talk a little bit. Ps. Sorry for my english, it is far form perfect In writing, a little better when I am speaking.
