My name is Catalin Petrean. I’m a quality engineer working in aerospace industry, living in Baia Mare, Maramures, Romania since 2012. I was born and raised in the southern Romania, in city of Resita.
As a child I’ve always loved working with my hands, and I’ve always had an subconscious interest in working with metals and other natural materials .
Along with my first job as welding engineer, I started developing the skills of creating things out of metal. Among those things…of course the knife takes the 1st place .
I started making my own knives in 2010 and have been at it ever since. For the most part I’m self taught, but I have received help in several crucial areas from some of my old colleagues.
A knife is one of the oldest and most useful tools, and although some of the methods and materials involved have changed, the basic concept has remained the same for thousands of years
