Modestas Skirmantas is a representative of the young generation of Lithuanian knifemakers. He began his adventure with knifemaking at the age of 11, creating blades for his own needs, which he used to develop his hobby, which was wood carving. Gradually, the passion for working with wood turned into a passion for processing steel, from which the first, original knife models were made. Before MS Knives developed for good, Modestas Skirmantas was graduated from the field of furniture design, and undertook various work outside his home country, including building construction. Nevertheless, his passion – knifemaking, has always been close, especially since he is also a lover of being outdoors, during which he tests knives and outdoor equipment. After a while, designing and making knives for himself turned into making them for friends and acquaintances, and then as the MS Knives concept became clearer to a wider audience. Today Modestas Skirmantas – MS Knives is a knifemaker who handcrafts fixed blade knives for survival, bushcraft, everyday use (EDC – Every Day Carry) etc. In its projects it combines classic shapes with modern notes personalizing each of them.
