  I am pleased to introduce this new Custom Maker to the US Market.  Kamil has built up a very loyal following in his native land of Poland and is now expanding to the US.  His work has been featured in International Knife magazines and I am sure he will quickly secure a place among US Collectors.  

Fort Henry Custom Knives is proud to be a Dealer for Kamil Duglosz 

Kamil Dlugosz is a young maker from Opole, Poland. Known for his clean designs and attention to detail, this example of his work showcases his talent. 

 This is his Amazing “Merkava” Bowie Knife  

 The sleek profile reminds one of a fine sportscar. But don’t be fooled by the refined appearance, this is a Tough, Full Tang blade that was made for extreme cutting. 

The Custom Handle scales are Thick, Deeply Contoured Ivory Micarta.  This material will slowly take on the Appearance of Fine Old Ivory over time. 

The Elmax Blade is .200 Thick and has a Tested Rockwell of 61 Rc.  Kamil has given the blade a Labor Intensive Hand Rubbed finish and left the Flats with the Scale on them. 

Note the Subtle yet elegant Recurve of the Cutting Edge.  

The following pictures show the area of the blade that indicates it has been used ~ difficult to see unless you are in the correct light. There may be other very light indications of use on the blade or handle. 

Extremely nice Thumb Ramp with Custom Thumb Ridges. The Custom Swedge goes almost the full length of the blade. 

Kamil does excellent work and once this knife is Sold it will be several months before I can get any more.  

The knife comes with a Custom Fit, Thick RH Leather Belt sheath.
