Shirogorov is a Russian knife company operated by Sergei Shirogorov. There isn’t a ton of info on the company (at least in English), but this is a growing manufacturer focusing on high end production and custom knives. Their website is in Russian but Google does a good job translating.
Shirogorov was originally founded by brothers Igor and Sergei. Unfortunately Igor passed away in 2015. Shirogorov is often categorized as pioneers in the recent trend of high end production knives coming out of Russia and Asia. They are known for sleek designs, fanatical attention to detail, and exceptional fit and finish. They are also known as pioneers of a Multi-Row Bearing System.
Shirogorov knives are among the most expensive knives I have reviewed on the website to date. Their production work often sells for north of $650 at retail, and their “custom division” pieces usually starts at $1,000 and goes up from there.
Recently Shirogorov has begun to collaborate with American designer Tom Mayo. My guess is we will begin to see a number of cool collaborations in the not so distant future.
I recommend buying Shirogorov Knives at BladeHQ (when they are available).
