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 Hunter / Woosdcraft knife, this is a Limited Edition design with only 10 pieces total being made, this is Michael’s Master Woodsman in S60V!
This knife has a sleek appearance but the S60V Blade (now Discontinued) is tough enough for any Camp or Woods Chore.
This is a tough Full Tang Hunter with a Custom Contoured Handle of Black G-10.
The handle is streamlined and has a 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.
The Flat Ground Blade was Hand Ground from Robust 5/32 nds CPM S60V that has a Two Tone finish. The Flats have the Original Mill Scale left on them and the Bevels have a Labor Intensive Hand Rubbed Finish.
A Late Distal Taper at the tip will allow for Finer Cutting work or assistance in puncture. Each knife in the Series is different, and each is Serial Numbered with this particular example being 3/10 (number 3 out of 10).
Michael is a perfectionist and crafted each part of this knife with care and precision.
This knife comes complete in a Custom Fitted Kydex Sheath with a Large Tek-Lok already attached.
~ Hand Crafted with precision from the finest materials ~
Watch for more of Michael’s work on my website very soon.
