Company is one of the oldest knife companies in the Czech Republic (former Czechoslovakia). Established in 1794
by Ignac Rosler it quickly became the leading producer of quality cutlery in its region. In 19th century the company had two factories - Sandrik and Koh-I-Noor. In 1955 those two factories united and MIKOV company was founded. Nowadays MIKOV is the biggest knife company in the Czech Republic - a manufacturer of a wide variety of folding knives, fixed blades, kitchen cutlery, scissors and office equipment.
It is possible to say that if there is any traditional knife in our country it must be a Mikov folder.
Materials: Mikov auto knives have blades made of 440A stainless steel. Exclusive lines use Damasteel and now also RWL-34. Some fixed blades are made of 440C steel. Scales are made from black or yellow ABS plastic, exotic wood (Cocobolo, Turkish walnut, Snakewood, Amboyna), real stag, buffalo horn and bone. All singlebladed automatic knives are made for left handed users as well.
My name is David. I work as a purchasing engineer for US based chip manufacturer. My hobbies include travelling, taking pictures, reading sci-fi books, playing with PDAs, computers, and with my two sons and also collecting watches and knives.
As a knife collector I participate in knife-related forums and it was only a matter of time before I was asked whether I could get MIKOV automatic knives.
So I called the company and that is how my little Mikov business in 1999 started...
