Ferenc Tumpek industrial folk artist

I have been producing hand-made knives since 1975. I founded my undertaking in 1990 with two characteristic lines, i.e. productions of DNC standard knives and Tumpek knives.

DNC knife

Both the logo and the firm name are derived from the initials of my children and my wife; while the ram-head symbol was selected as both of my children were born in the month of Ram. The knives made by high-standard handwork are valuable articles for expert, curio-hunters and non-professionals. They are made of wide variety of materials in a perfect design. The knives completed show an unmistakable practical design. Each DNC knife is designed with tang tapered towards its end that is called "Taper Tang" in the lingo. The finger guard is made of chromium-steel resistant to acids and rust. The table below offers you detailed information on the sizes, masses and other details. Any insignificant deviations from the data indicated are due to the handwork. Using the table "Special make-up" provides you assistance in setting up your custom-made DNC knife.
