Looking for Master Smith in Europe

Anetta Ameryk

Hi Guys,

Is there any place where I can check Master Smiths in Europe?

I know about three of them in France and Belgium, but anyone closer to central Europe (Germany, Czech, Austria, Sweden,...)?

Is there any list of Master Smiths by name and country?

Thanks for any information,

Anetta

Hello Anetta, 

Currently they only European Mastersmiths with an active membership that I can find in the site database are:

Veronique Laurent- Belgium

Jean Louis Regel- France

Jean-Paul Thevenot- France

Hello Anetta. There is a journeyman smith in Bavaria, Derrick Wulf. He is a very accomplished maker.

Thank you very much. I am a fresh ABS member and just finish ABS course in Heavin Forge, so I have still at least two years before performance test. By that time may be there will be more Masters in Europe. May be Derric Wulf...

Thanks again,

Anetta

Hi Anetta, I do hope that I'm able to achieve the rank of Mastersmith within the next few years, but if not you may also be able to arrange a performance test with a Mastersmith visiting Europe for a knife show. In two weeks, for example, Canadian Mastersmith Christoph Deringer will be in Solingen, Germany for the "Knife 2022" show, where he and I will both be exhibiting. The SICAC and FICX shows in Paris, typically held each September, have also often had Mastersmiths in attendance. 

In the meantime please feel free to call or email me if there's anything I might be able to help you with. Fellow ABS members are always welcome in my shop.

Sorry, Kevin... Sam Lurquin is not in this list? 😶

Thank you so much Pablo for pointing that out. I need to examine the database and see why Sam did not come up on that list and correct it.

Hello Pablo, 

After an exhaustive search of the database records and reaching out to the ABS office for membership records, it would appear that Sam Lurquin has chosen not to renew his ABS membership for a couple of years, and thus is not included on the lists of rated smiths or members.
