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.

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.
This is a very Elegant, Full Sized Hunter ~ Hand Crafted with a beautiful Sambar Stag Handle, Hammered Bronze Guard and Hand Forged W2 Steel Blade.
The *W2 Blade was Forged to Shape and then Hand Ground by Mariano with a near Perfect Convex Grind. It is nearly 1 1/2″ 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 Single piece of Gnarly Sambar Stag with a gentle curve that provides 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.
A Thick Leather Pouch Sheath also made by Mariano is included.
The Pocket / Pack Sheath holds the knife securely. It has tight stitching with Beautiful Finish Work.
This knife comes with a Hand Written COA and a Padded Zipper Storage Case
This is the exact knife you will receive ~ I have Only One
*While photographing this knife I noticed a tiny spot on the forward tip of the blade, I cleaned it with Nevr Dull but it can still be seen. This will not effect the use of this beautiful blade – but I have adjusted the Price accordingly.
Add a Custom Embroidered Padded Zipper Case for proper storage ~ HERE
