CKF (Custom Knife Factory). About us. 

Hailing from Moscow in the heart of Russia, Custom Knife Factory specializes in old world craftsmanship using high-tech materials and techniques. We seek to offer superior quality knives to our Customers and affordable prices with high attention to detail.

HISTORY: We have been in knife market since 2008 (One of the largest Russian knife shops BestBlades.RU) and started our own knife brand in 2013 (CKF). We work only with best designers in industry. More than 5800 Clients worldwide. Have a look at CKF Clients World Map!. Worldwide net of dealerships. And we are still small family business. Support local custom knifemakers and small business!

OUR TEAM: Mike Kulygin (owner-operator, QC), Anastasiya Kulygina (logistics), Kate Naumkina (manager), Anton Malyshev (3D, visualisation, machining, design), Yan Xuecai (logistics, QC), Aleksey Konygin (3D, knifemaking, machining, design), Stas Bondarenko (brilliant customizing, knifemaking), Andrew Bugaev (content, photography, logistics). 

OUR KNIVES: They say the quality of our knives many other makers would charge at least double for. We call them "midtech" or "production" knives, but want them to be like customs. And many people compare them with custom ones :) We do not copy one old design with slight changes. All our knives are different. Limited. Numbered. Made with Russian and American materials, Austrian steel, best possible outsource Chinese machining, finished and customized with assiduous Russian hands. And yes, we are first on market who add additional case, pouch, all little screws, full pivot system, bearings, steel lock insert and even clip to every knife shipped.

LOYALTY PROGRAM: We welcome you to CKF Loyalty program. Check your email after your first order is marked "delivered" in our System. You support us, we support you.

OUR PLANS: Our Clients base is growing constantly and we are not going to stop. More new designs and collaborations are coming. We attend almost in every Knife Show around the World. We have great collaboration projects with: Rotten Design, Peter Rassenti, Tashi Bharucha, Philippe Jourget, Tuff Knives, SNECX, Matthew Christensen, Gavko Knives, Kombou, Jake Hoback.

Next year will bring new brilliant custom knifemakers names into the production world of quality knives for our beloved Clients and knifenuts all over the World.

Mike Kulygin
