Bastien Coves is a french Knifemaker who immigrated to the USA. He currently resides with his wife and 2 children in Orlando, FL. Bastien started his knife collection when he was 7 and is very experienced with carrying, using, and playing each day with different kinds of knives ( fixed blades, Karambits, balisongs, Katanas, folding knives, push daggers, etc.). "My work as a knifemaker and knife designer pushes me to make lots of cutting tests each week over the past decade, which allows me to better create and warranty the perfect knife to my customers." Bastien has extensive  work for the military, law enforcement, french special units, martial arts instructors, martial arts students, collectors, etc. My work is my passion and I’m lucky to live it each day. To meet and share it with other people who are passionate about knives.

    Pika

    Posted by Brad Tobler on May 5th 2022

    The hand wrap is well done. The Menuki is solidly in place. The knife is semi-sharp. The sheath was formed well enough to the knife to not allow the knife to wiggle and was securely held. I gave this 4 stars because the grind was off a bit at the tip of the knife’s edge. After using this knife, I’m not much of a fan for the chisel grind. I’d rather have seen a traditional scandi grind or similar style. Overall, it works and its lightweight makes it nice to carry all day.
