Michael West, Denmark.

I live in Denmark on the countryside, where i have my workshop and run “Westknives” as solo knife maker.
I do 3 – 5 international shows every year, but make most from custom orders and sale.
I made my first knife in 1979, and have ever since been working hard to develop my skills and knives. I’m making knives in the tradition of “Danish Design”. By time the knife making has become a way of living .

Why do you choose Damasteel®?
They represent the very best in design, materials and craftsmanship. Every knife is a handmade, unique specimen, where lines, shape and materials form a unified whole.
Cant remember was the first steel was, but from my second grind i use Damasteel. I was told from a metallurg, it was the best steel for knife making, and haven’t ever looked back since.
It is reliable, easy to work, hold a great polish and just a top performer, when it comes to usability.

Favorite Damasteel pattern:
Love Twist… Kind of all patterns mother.
