Ostap Hel is a full time designer and custom knives & gear maker from Poland.
Since he was a child he has always loved drawing things - probably because of genes. His father is a graduate of Academy of Arts, so first years of his life he spent with his parents in dorm surrounded by students from all kind of art faculties.
Knives in his life appeared when he was a teenager, due to his growing interests in Middle Ages and all kind of weapons and knights equipment. He spent a year in armorer workshop as an apprentice where he has learned basics of traditional medieval metalworking methods. Since then he has been looking for more reliable, repeatable and precise way of creating things than using basic hand tools - that's how he own workshop and journey with manual machining and CNC was started.
All his designs are based on basic geometry, smooth transitions and Golden Ratio concept. However in his collaborations he always try to experiment with new shapes and ideas to fit his partner’s company unique style and manufacturing capabilities
