Tips for Christmas gifts
Christmas is less than two weeks away. Since you may still be thinking about gifts for your loved ones, here are some tips. And while we make products that at first glance look like they're just for men, that's far from the case.
UTON with combat experience from UNPROFOR missions
You don't often see UTONs that have been through combat. And that's a good thing, because nobody likes war. But they still exist, and it's always a treat to see them for yourself. We had that privilege on Saturday when we gratefully accepted an invitation to Leškovice, a village near Havlíčkův Brod, where veterans of UNPROFOR missions gathered at the local municipal office for an exhibition.
Air cord pattern 27
One of the novelties of this year is a faithful copy of the air cord pattern 27. It is one of the products that we are very happy about, because it carries a good portion of craftsmanship and also reminds us of a significant personality of our First Republic army.
Why we claim 1794

So it's a good idea not to skimp on knives and to try out which of these helpers is the most suitable for a particular job. So let's take a look at the options in our basic range of popular kitchen knives, which we've called KLASIK.

Air cord pattern 27 impressed at FUTURE FORCES EXHIBITION
From Wednesday 19 to Friday 21 October we had a stand at the Future Forces Exhibition as part of the prestigious Future forces forum. And cold weapons were certainly not lost among the complex weapon systems.
Robots and machining centres won't replace people, but they will help
The knives made at the Mikov factory, as well as the chisels produced at our Narex Bystřice plant, are tools that have remained virtually unchanged over the centuries. Of course, new designs and better materials are used for knives, but the principle remains the same - a comfortable handle and a sharp tool.
