Featured Knife 2018
This year’s featured blade is the Knives UK 2017 “Best Fixed Blade by a professional maker“
It was for a split ring-guard Bowie by Stephen Nowacki.
Steve has been a professional knife maker since early 2015.
Working mainly in O1 steel, Steve will often also work in other steels like EN43 and EN45 to make fixed blade knives.
Each of his knives are customised to suit the needs of the user and are aimed at gamekeepers, bushcrafters, stalkers, Ghillies and professional soldiers or top tier military.
Blades come with a flat grind and every aspect of the knife and sheath are done by Steve in his UK workshop.
