Leszek Sikon

Originally from Poland, Leszek Sikon came to the UK twelve years ago as a middle manager in the retail sector. Unfulfilled, and knowing he wanted to create something that would last, he left to undertake a blacksmithing course at Hereford College of Arts.

Leszek has subsequently developed and produced a series of artisan tools and knives, using age old skills to produce modern objects of desire. Inspired by the history of blacksmithing and traditional methods, Leszek loves working with hammer, tongs, and fire, and believes that these skills have benefited him greatly.

Leszek Sikon lives and works in Suffolk and has been a Design-Nation member since 2018.
