I was fortunate enough to win his Christmas giveaway: a Model 150 Standard Tanto in K-100 tool steel. Do a search under Reviews and you should find my report. Ivan does beautiful work: the grind is perfect, not a flaw anywhere; the handle wrap is as functional as it is beautiful. K-100 is the equivalent of D-3, very difficult to grind but outstanding in edge holding. You could shave with this knive (at a 35 degree chisel angle) or chop through a 2 x 4... or vice versa. Ivan was quick to answer my many questions and the Christmas surprise arrived exactly as promised. You won't be sorry dealing with Ivan, IMHO.

I JUST missed meeting him at the Blade show in 1999, but we have emailed back and forth some time ago when he was getting into cord wrap handles and seemed like a very passionate fellow in regards to knives and I would say has a high standard when it comes to making them, he wants only the best. So you shouldn't have any problems with Ivan.
