Once in a great while I have time to walk around a Knife Show to see what catches my eye. Even more rare is when I find myself drawn back to a New Makers Table a second or third time. Yet that is exactly what happened at the recent NYCKS I attended.
I introduced myself to Michael Zieba and we began discussing his work. As he described his extensive artistic background and his knife making techniques, I took the time to examine his knives VERY closely. Upon inspection it was easy to see the passion and fine detailed dedication that he put into each of his creations ~ whether it was High End Custom Chef’s knives, exquisite Hand Carved Knife Display Boxes or Hard Use Cutting Tools for Emergency Personnel. I understood Michael’s philosophy, recognized his talent and felt compelled to share his unique creations with my customers.

I am proud to feature Michael’s latest New Model, this is a Limited Edition of 10 Knives, each with a different handle material. This is a beautiful Custom Hunter in CPM 3V!
This knife has a sleek appearance but the Wide CPM 3V Blade is tough enough for any Camp or Cattle Chore. The Flat Ground Blade was Hand Ground and Michael gave it a Labor Intensive Hand Rubbed Finish.
This is a tough Full Tang Blade with a Custom Contoured Handle of Stabilized Curly Maple with Yellow Liners.
Each knife in the series is Serial Numbered and also has a Compass Rose Long / Latitude. This knife is Serial Number 4 of 10.
The handle is streamlined and has a slight Birds Beak Butt shape to help keep the handle firmly in your palm. The Handle Scales were cut from the same block so they match perfectly.
A Late Distal Taper at the tip will allow for Finer Cutting work or assistance in puncture. Each knife in the Series is different.
Michael is a perfectionist and crafted each part of this knife with care and precision.
This knife comes complete in a Custom Paul Long Leather Sheath. Paul is one of the most sought after Sheath Makers in the World, each sheath has a soft interior Lining to protect the knife.
~ Hand Crafted with precision from the finest materials ~
Also included is a FREE Custom Bronze Bead, a COA and a Padded Zipper Case.
This is the Exact knife you will receive.
Watch for more of Michael’s work on my website very soon.
