Forged knives by Igor Kampman, an autodidact polymath artist with a passion for 'brutdeforge' style knives.

I am a part time knife smith and started forging knives in 2010 after being inspired by a documentary of Ron Hoods (Woodmaster) with Tai Goo and Tim Lively about neo tribal knife making.

Besides knife making i am a tattooist with my own studio and together with my best friend we have a small bushcraft school where we teach adults and children how to make their lives comfortable in the wild.

With many years of experience as a outdoor instructor and being out there since a child with my father and grandfather (this side of my family who were gamekeepers), i have created my own way of making knives that are good for bushcraft, hunting, survival and kitchen use.


It takes at least 3 days to make a unique and one of a kind knife.

I am inspired by old crafts, nature, tribalism and tales from the past.
Kampman knives are rustique workers with character, made from new and reclaimed materials in the lowlands of the Netherlands.
