My name is Gudy van Poppel and live in the Netherlands.
I’m a bladesmith who lives in the southern part of Holland and have been making
blades for many years now. In those years the focus has changed from fixed blades
to swords to folding knives and back again. What these blades have in common is that
most are made out of damascus steel.
To handle my blades, I like to use materials like mammoth ivory, walrus ivory, exotic
hardwoods, antler and bones of all sort.
In short, most anything is possible and I’m always broadening my horizon.
