Welcome to DP Custom Knives.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my site.  A little about me – my name is Dmitriy Popov and I currently live in the Western suburbs of Sydney, Australia. I have always been fascinated by edged tools and in 2011 have taken a plunge into knifemaking, which has consumed my life ever since.

This creative outlet has allowed me to embark on the search for perfection, both in my design and knifemaking skills. I have been very fortunate to have my work discovered by people that appreciate knives and edged tools and I enjoy creating unique, beautiful and practical knives for my customers. I have been honored with multiple awards over the years and am a member of the Australian Knife Art Association.

I don’t mass produce anything. Every single knife you see on this webpage has been hand crafted in my workshop. I am solely responsible for every step of the  process – design, metal and wood work, heat treatment, sheaths, sales, etc. Each knife is handcrafted for a particular client – I take the time to understand the intended use for the knife and work with clients in creating a unique knife just for them.

I do occasionally make a ‘for sale’ knife so please check the ‘Sales Corner’ for any available items. If you like, please feel free to sign up to the mailing list to receive regular newsletters and to be notified of any knives becoming available for sale.

If you would like to get in touch, please shoot me an email – dmitriy@dpcustomknives.com.au.  You can also catch me on  Instragram @dpcustomknives, Facebook – DP Custom Knives and YouTube – DP Custom Knives

Thank you again.
