Fine, handcrafted knives and tools







Knives are one of mankind’s oldest tools and are still used daily by most of the world’s population. BALETA Handmade knives are fine, hand-crafted tools, all made with the intention that they are used. To ensure a product of the finest quality, production processes that have been refined over many years are used in the crafting of BALETA Handmade knives and tools - all of the materials and components have been carefully selected for their intended use. With correct care, a BALETA Handmade knife or tool will give you a lifetime of use and enjoyment, and you will be able to pass this beautiful heirloom piece on for future generations to enjoy.


BALETA Handmade knives and tools are all exclusively crafted by myself, Paul Baleta. I have always had a facination with knives, swords and hand tools... anything sharp. I love working with my hands and natural materials. My first handmade knife was started as a teenager growing up in South Africa. Since then, I have made knives on and off for my own use, and as gifts for friends and family. After many years in the corporate world and business travel, I have now gone back to one of my original passions and am now making knives and tools from my small workshop in the Austrian hills.

Unlike mass-produced items, a BALETA Handmade knife or tool is not a product of some random statistics of machine output, but rather, a piece of art that I have at attempted to turn into a masterpiece.
