Last year during the chaos that is the Blade Show, I was intent to meet world renowned Knife Maker Claudio Sobral of CAS knives. After talking with Claudio he introduced me to his good friend, also a Knife Maker ~ and that Maker was Mariano Yannoni. I was thrilled to see that Mariano still had a few knives on his table, so after speaking with him and inspecting his knives ~ I purchased everything Mariano had left! I am very proud to be able to offer his knives to my Customers.
Fort Henry Custom Knives is proud to be a direct Dealer for Mariano Yannoni custom knives
~ Just Received – Direct from the Maker ~
Mariano Yannoni is clearly a Maker who enjoys Hand Crafting Solid Working knives, from Custom Fixed Blades to Robust Friction Folders. Mariano uses several kinds of Steel on his knives, but his favorite is the Hand Forged San Mai steel that he gets from his friend Claudio Sobral!
This is a very powerful, Full Sized Hunter ~ Hand Crafted with beautiful Sambar Stag Handle Scales and CAS Knives Hand Forged San Mai Steel!
The Hand Forged San Mai Blade has a 1095 Core with a 420 Exterior ~ the steel was Forged by Claudio Sobral and then Hand Ground to shape by Mariano with a near Perfect Convex Grind. It is more than 1 1/2″ Wide and has a Hand Polished finish that clearly shows the gorgeous Lamination Lines of the Steels. Mariano decided to leave the Forge Scale at the Top and Rear of the blade for a Brute de Forge appearance.
This is a stout Full Tang piece and Mariano has Custom Contoured the Sambar Stag scales to create a very comfortable Full Grip handle.
This knife would be a joy to use and is sure to Please with its Performance, as much as it does with its Appearance.

The Pocket / Pack Sheath holds the knife securely. It has tight stitching with Beautiful Finish Work.
