More about Dmitry Sinkevich

“I was born in Minsk, Belarus, in 1978. I graduated from the Belarus National Technical University, and spent a few years working in mechanical and aerospace engineering.

My inspiration mainly comes from the urban landscape of a modern city. My introduction to knifemaking was driven by my desire to possess an own knife which would fit that industrial image – unique, utilitarian, and ergonomic. That was my entry into knifemaking more than 20 years ago. I believe that a modern knife can both be an art object and a utilitarian tool at once, and there are very few things about knifemaking I enjoy more than combining a unique and intelligent design with everyday practicality.

My models are made in very limited runs. Typically a model ‘run’ does not exceed three pieces, and sometimes just a single knife of a particular design is made. Earlier designs are rarely repeated, and I usually have time to make less than 50% of what I have on the drawing board, as the city around us provides a lot of sources of inspiration. I often experiment with different designs, technical features (e.g. different locking mechanisms), and materials. I prefer working with RWL34 and CPM 154 CM for their consistently aggressive cutting performance.

Given the very limited nature of the number of knives I produce, it is very important that fit and finish on each one are as flawless as possible. Therefore besides the unique design, extreme attention is paid to build quality.

Apart from knives, I also make belt and watch buckles, as well as jewelry pieces from titanium, tungsten, and bronze.”
