Robertson’s Custom Cutlery welcomes two new custom knife makers to our website.
We at Robertson’s Custom Cutlery would like to welcome custom knife makers Ricardo Vilar and Michal Komorovsky to our lineup.
Les was introduced to Ricardo by Jerry Fisk at the 2005 Blade Show where he earned his Journeyman Smith stamp. Jerry spoke very highly of Ricardo and his work. At the time, Ricardo was living in Brazil. Today, he lives in Nashville, AR. If that sounds familiar to some of you, that is the same town in Arkansas that Jerry lives in.
We have been talking for the last few years about working together. Finally, in October of this year I received my first knife from Ricardo. The knife was exactly what I expected. It was well balanced, clean craftmanship and excellent handle ergonomics. All this at a value price of $1,225.00.
If you don’t have one of Ricardo’s knives in your collection, you should. If you are a Bowie collector, I would heartily recommend this one which is currently available.
Michal Komorovsky began making custom knives in 2011. He went full time in 2013. He is a member of the Slovak Association of Knife Makers. This organization is similar to the US Knifemaker’s Guild.
Les started communicating with Michal Komorovsky from Slovakia in May of this year. We all know that it can be difficult to judge a knife by only a photo. Michal sent me several photos of the Thuban. After several emails, looking at these he felt very confident about his work. Despite the language barrier, he was able to obtain our first custom knife from Michal called the Thuban. Upon receiving the knife from him, we were not disappointed. Excellent flow from the tip of the blade to the end of the handle. The Thuban is very quick for such a large knife. This due in large part to its balance and great handle ergonomics.
The Thuban sold very quickly; however, more knives will be forth coming from Michal in the near future. Let us know if you’re interested.
