My Name is Michael Holmström and i live in Sweden
in a little town called Ludvika, 25 mile west of Stockholm.
I have spent lots of time outdoors in the nature since
i was a little boy.
So the knife has always been a useful tool for me.

My interest for knife-making started seriously in1993
when I was visiting an exhibition in my home town.
(Then, I wanted to make a knife of beauty that it
would make others cry. Iīt did, but for another reason.)
The first knifes didnīt work out so well, but after a
visit to the local library and some more practice
itīs getting better.
Today, 24 years after making my first knife
itīs still a pleasant hobby.

I have always manufactured my own blades for almost
all my knives.
It hasnīt been more than a few blades each time.
but over time, I have concentrated on manufacturing
more and more knifeblades.

At the moment im about to complete a 20 ton hydraulic forging
press for damasc billets. The paint is drying just at this moment.

Itīs time for the first test run soon!
 

Michael
