In mid the 90s we acquired an abandoned forge in Nizhegorodsky Region, Russia near the town Vorsma. After complete renovation we gathered a team of experienced blacksmiths, metalworkers and knife-makers and started making high quality hunting knives. Our Senior Designer - Andrew Holz and our Forge Manager Vladimir are prominent hunters. So they know exactly what a good hunting knife is.
Best quality steel and handle materials, high level of workmanship and professional design make our production stand out in the huge array of knives around the World. We have many thousands of happy hunters, who have been using our knives for more than two decades in Russia and Europe.
In 2006 we decided to import our knives to the USA and founded Swan Lake Knives as a branch of Swan Lake Art Studio (Swan Lake, Inc.). Our office, workshop and warehouse is located just a few miles NW of Chicago in Glenview, IL.
We offer Production knives, Custom knives, casted Bronze and Nickel silver guards, bolsters and pommels.
