Hi, my name is Jakub Golla, knife maker based in Prague Czech Republic. I like well designed simple and practiclal things, and knife is one of the simplest and most practical things ever. I've loved knives since I was little boy, and I started making handmade and custom knives in 2014.
I mostly use German or Swedish steel made by Böhler Uddeholm, Sleipner (Swedish tool steel) is my personal favorie - great value for the money, tough and great edge retention, with very good rust resistance for a tool seel (imho better than some stainless steels).
For scales I mostly use G10 - composite material (resin + fiberglass).
