I met Igor Potapov at the New York Custom Knife Show and was instantly taken with the variety of Knives and Beads that he offered. Every item was crafted with the utmost attention to detail. Igor is a passionate knife enthusiast, starting out as a Collector and then turning his talent for Artistry to Knife and Bead Making. Even though Igor is new in the knife business, he has set himself apart with his unique Designs and Materials. All of Igor’s knives and Beads are based on his own designs with many more different and developing knife designs coming soon.
