Welcome to our website!
I am László Papp, a knife maker.
I learned the basics of the profession from my father, who, as a self-employed person, mainly made kitchen knives from 1980. Later, pocket knives and hunting knives were added to our products. After completing my studies, since 1989, I have been doing this beautiful but not easy craft full-time.
The pocket knife is still a popular old-fashioned tool
Nowadays, the revival of our traditions and folk culture, the rediscovery of our traditional tools are becoming more and more popular. One example of this is the growing interest in traditional Hungarian pocket knives. More and more people feel compelled to own such a handcrafted product. Those who have tried it once, definitely state (which I can only confirm) that the wall tastes different when cut with a traditional knife.
Their names often refer to their shape, such as a head curve. In other cases, however, the method of use is the name giver, see: bacon maker. There is also an example that it got its name from the knife makers. This is how the name nader came about. Certain professions and trades also contributed to the diversity of names. The shepherd's knife, nail clipper and pruning knife are proof of this. In addition to these, there are also mascara, cakli, oval, sailor and harvester knives.
Modern industrial art: tradition infused with innovation
Making such a pocket knife requires a lot of patience, expertise, creativity and humility towards the profession - it is not for nothing that knife makers call this the pinnacle of the profession. No two knives are the same, there are always different problems, the solution of which requires constant attention and perseverance.
The preparation method basically follows the old traditions, but of course today's technological development can also be found during the process. However, this does not detract from the artisanal character, as only a part of the laborious physical work can be made easier in this way. The professionalism of the design and the detail and precision of the implementation cannot be replaced by anything.
Since I am quite an experimental type, the idea of combining the traditional world of shapes with the modern mechanical structure did not let me rest. This is how the medium-lock large-head knife was born, of which I made the very first one. This was followed by the mascara pocket knife with the same locking mechanism, also pioneering.

It is difficult to create something "permanent" in the art of cooking, as delicious dishes are known for quickly disappearing from the plate. At the same time, kitchen tools are not without weight in the success of the prepared food, so the role of knives is also important, since they are used to cut, chop and slice the raw material to a sufficient fineness.

The special feature of the handle is a rubberized plastic composed based on its own recipe, which provides better grip during use.
