  I am pleased to introduce this new Custom Maker to the US Market.  Georgi started his knife making career at the age of 16.  He is still relatively young at 25 and he has enjoyed working with some of the best European knife Makers. He has built up a loyal following in his native land of Bulgaria and is now expanding to the US.  His work is well thought of by his peers and I am sure he will quickly secure a place among US Collectors.

Fort Henry Custom Knives is proud to be a Dealer for Georgi Menchev  

Georgi Menchev is a young maker from Bulgaria. Georgi does not use any CNC or Computer Equipment in the crafting of his knives.  He makes each knife by Hand and is well known for his clean designs and attention to detail, this example of his work showcases his talent. 

Menchev drop point front

 This Menchev Drop Point is a beautiful, Hand Made knife that has more than enough blade for any Daily Cutting, Medium to Large Game or Light Camping chore. 

Here is a blade that embodies the true spirit of a Hand Made knife. Georgi Crafted the Handle using Gorgeous Stabilized Alder Burl.  He also gave the Custom Nickel Silver Finger Guardand Buttcap a Mirror Polished finish. Also note the fine Brass Spacer in the Guard! 

The One Piece Handle is Deeply Contoured for a very comfortable Shape.  Larger and Thicker on top with Flat Sides and ending in a Tear Drop bottom.  When in the hand, the Fingers rest comfortably on the Flat Side Area and the smaller Tapered bottom of the handle fills the Palm. 

The RWL-34 Blade has a Graduated Hollow Grind with a Custom Swedge and a Subtle Distal Taper.  The Two Tone Finish showcases Georgi’s Precision Grinding ability.  RWL Steel is a very Clean Particle Steel and is even used by Damasteel of Sweden as their base for their Damascus.  The blade measures a respectable .160 Thick and has a Rockwell of 60-61 Rc.  

This is a Wonderfully made, Robust Hunter that is meant to tackle any Game or Camp chore ~ just the size to carry comfortably into the woods.  

Georgi does excellent work and once this knife is Sold it will be several months before I can get another.   

The knife comes with a Beautiful, Thick Hand Stitched Leather Pouch sheath with an Exotic Python Inlay also Custom made by Georgi

Complete with a Removable Leather Dangler ~ ready your next trek into the Wilderness.
