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.

Custom Hunting Knife ~ 1 of 2
This is a one of Michael’s rare Master Hunter Collaboration knives. As an Artist Michael enjoys creation and experimentation, each year he makes various Fixed Blades that deviate from his normal line – these are VERY RARE as only a few are made each year.
This is a Custom Creation, tough enough for any Camp or Woods Chore.
This is a Full Tang Hunter with a wonderfully comfortable Custom Contoured Handle of Silver Twill G-10 Twist, sectioned onto a thick Black G-10 Base!
The M390 Blade blade measures a Healthy 1 3/16″ Wide and was Hand Ground with a near Full Height Hollow Grind. Michael also put the other Maker’s name on the opposite side – Bladowski
There are also Heavy Duty Thumb Ridges on the Spine for added Grip Security.
This knife has a Beautiful Hand Rubbed finish and a Late Distal Taper at the tip that will allow for Finer Cutting work or assistance in puncture. Michael is a perfectionist and crafted each part of this knife with care and precision.
