Mikov will be a successor of Lubomír Maďarič

There are not many knife makers who have impressed themselves into the minds of knife fans in the past thirty years, like Mr. Lubomír Maďarič. A trained locksmith, who excelled in athletics and weightlifting in his youth, began making his first knives back in 1972.

Electricians - we have something for

Assembling or repairing wiring is a highly professional job that requires not only a qualification but also precision, reliability and, of course, quality tools.

How to keep kitchen knives sharp?

They will meet for the third time this June in Albacete, Spain - where of course Mikulášovice will not be missing - and thus also Mikov.
