Michael Zieba first moved to the United States from Poland in 2005.

His love for craftsmanship and industrial work began with helping his father with his furniture factory when he was only eleven years old.

Michael taught himself industrial design and mechanics, as he worked various jobs in construction during his first five years in the United States.

Now, a proud Brooklyn local, Michael is the owner of Zieba New York and is the first and only knifemaker in Brooklyn that is part of the Brooklyn Made Chamber of Commerce.

Mikey is a self-taught, self-made man as well.
