 A few years ago 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.

~ 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.  This is a very Elegant design, Small Hunter ~ Hand Crafted with a beautiful Stag Handle and Hand Forged 1095 Steel Blade.

The 1095 Blade was Forged to Shape and then Hand Ground by Mariano with a near Perfect Flat Grind. It is 1″ Wide at the base and has a Labor Intensive Hand Rubbed finish which has an expert differential Heat Treatment as evidenced by the Amazing Hamon. This type of Heat Treat greatly increases the strength of the blade by providing a Razor Sharp 60-61 Rc edge but leaves the Spine softer. 

This knife has a beautiful piece of aged Sambar Stag that was once the Tine of a Large Antler  

The handle has Gnarly Surface texture and a gentle curve that provides a very comfortable Full Size Grip. With Forward Copper Spacers and Black G-10 Guard this knife has wonderful Character.
