Andrey Biryukov is a very talented knife maker from Pavlovo city in Russia.
In 2004 Andrey started his blacksmith career as a helper in the local workshop and fell in love with knife making. In the beginning, he was forging Damascus and simple steel blades only. But in 2010, he decided to go "all-in" and built his knife shop, invited his friends knife makers, and started his incredible adventure as a custom knife maker :-)
Today, he is a well-known Russian knife maker and, according to many independent reviewers, is the best heat treatment specialist for powdered steels like CPM S125V and REX 121 and more.
