Sold out 299,00 €

First handcrafted items that I made as a child were wooden toy guns. With those, me and my friends played war in the forests. I feel, that the circle is now complete as I create wooden high end design guns from the best possible materials available. I hope that you enjoy the feel and aesthetics of this artifact, whether you use it for home decoration or war games.

“Of all the weapons in the vast soviet arsenal, nothing was more profitable than Avtomat Kalashnikova model of 1947. More commonly known as the AK-47, or Kalashnikov. It’s the world’s most popular assault rifle. A weapon all fighters love. An elegantly simple 9 pound amalgamation of forged steel and plywood. It doesn’t break, jam, or overheat. It’ll shoot whether it’s covered in mud or filled with sand. It’s so easy, even a child can use it; and they do. The Soviets put the gun on a coin. Mozambique put it on their flag. Since the end of the Cold War, the Kalashnikov has become the Russian people’s greatest export. After that comes vodka, caviar, and suicidal novelists. One thing is for sure, no one was lining up to buy their cars.”

-Yuri Orlov, Lord of War (2005)
