Comments: At the age of 14, talented Thai artist Suchat Jangtanong entered his lifelong profession by becoming a third generation knife maker. He first learned the fundamentals of the trade by assisting his father and grandfather in the family's knife making business located in the Uthai Thani province of Thailand. After his initial training he attended the Royal Thai Handcraft Atelier to learn the fine points of making high precision folders.

After graduating in 1982, he worked as a trainee with an experienced knife making team. It was also here that he first became known for his remarkable ability to carve. Finally in 1984 he opened his own shop where he carries on the tradition of handcrafting each of his knives using basic hand tools just like his father and grandfather before him.

It is Suchat' belief that the real beauty of knife making is found in being able use your imagination to guide your creations and in having a truly unique vision for each knife you design. When asked to name which makers he admires most we learn he is a big Larry Fuegen fan - partly because Larry uses mostly basic hand tools and partly because his designs and carving are so uniquely beautiful.

Simply put, these knives have lovely proportions, stunning carving and wonderful subtle details everywhere you look.On many knives this includes Gem Grade Diamonds, filed and anodized titanium liners, leather thongs trimmed with sterling silver beads and Mosaic Damascus by Robert Calcinore.

And I cannot think of another current maker offering this much knife for so little money - at least for now!
