Kertesz Attila

19 April 2015 Author : 

Knife maker since 1986, Attila Kertesz discovered his passion for knives during his first job in a steel factory in Hungary, where he learned the basics of steel processing from the old craftsmen.

Since 2004 he has been a member of the Hungarian Knife Makers Guild (Magyar Késmíves Céh), and in 2014 he became a member of the German Knifemakers Guild (Deutsche Messermacher Gilde).
He handmakes exclusive and hunting knives by stock removal method, mainly using the following steels: 440c, ATS-34, D2, RWL-34, damask and stainless damask.
The handles of his knives can be crafted from a variety of bones and wood; he often uses ornamentation and inlays that can be made of materials such as coral, turquoise, mother-of-pearl or mammoth ivory.
The sheaths are made with the use of cow skin, snakeskin, stingray skin, ostrich skin or crocodile skin.

For his exclusive knives he often collaborates with master engravers, who create embellishments such as carvings, scrimshaw and bolino techniques.
