Real Wootz Steel (Bulat) Knife:
$506

You are looking at an exquisite "piece of art". Custom hand made from the blade to the sheath featuring superb quality and astonishing craftsmanship. This is a Wootz (AKA Bulat) Steel knife hand forged by the renowned Russian Master Bladesmith - Ivan Kirpichev.

Ever saw those stunning looking Persian wootz blades from the museums in the magazines or on the net, and drool over them. Ever wished you could have one like that, but the thought of the price simply pushed you back into your reality? I know I have. Never really thought it could be possible. I mean you could find plenty of them even on . No offence but, I doubt that they are even wootz or exceptional quality of wootz that is. Ivan Kirpichev has dedicated a tremendous amount of research, time and work to restore the ancient technology of production of wootz steel - the best material for manufacturing swords, daggers, hunting knives, etc. Ivan Kirpichev's wootz blades are the only blades, in my opinion, that can come close to comparison to the ancient artifacts of famous Persian swords in museums both in pattern and quality. If you look at the attached picture of different types of wootz steel blades (museum pieces) you will see what I am talking about.

Now, the question: what kind of knife are you looking for? Is it just a nice-looking toy that will be placed on a shelf with a “Don’t Touch!” sign next to it, or is it a stunning appeal, coming from the ancient times, and still a “working horse” type of a knife? The modern market is over-flooded with the multilayer pattern-welded Damascus, but is it really that good? Ivan Kirpichev's Bulat blade was put through the vigorous test along with the pattern-welded Damascus blade, which was purchased at the New York Knife Show. Prior to the tests, each blade was provided with a temporary handle for convenience of manipulating. Each experiment has shown clearly that the pattern-welded Damascus blade cannot tolerate the brutal force of the legendary Bulat steel, which can also go through a nail as if it was a piece of butter. The tests were put on video and available upon request. Just like the ancient Wootz and crucible Damascus, Ivan Kirpichev's wootz steel restores its pattern and qualitative characteristics even after being re-melted. The unique combination of properties such as hardness and wear resistance and resilience is attributed both to the manufacturing technology. The steel has high mechanical properties for the production of combat and hunting knives. Moreover, each finished blade has stunning eye appeal, the result of a pattern formed during smelting and forging.

Each blade is labeled with the Master's mark (as can be seen on the pictures of the actual blade). The blade is 6" in length. Handle is made of the premium quality stag (of the inhabitant of russian forest). Sheath is made of best quality strong 10 oz. cowhide leather, which will last a lifetime.


I got 14 of them last year and my friends snatched all of them like there was no tomorrow, I didn't get to keep one for my own collection. This time I have a couple of leftovers. They are not easy to import from Russia as there are many restrictions that apply on shipping among other things, so don't miss your chance.

No knife collection is complete without a knife made of wootz!

Please don't hesitate to contact me should you have questions about the item.

International buyers are welcome!

Good Luck!
