    Default Engraver friends at the Milan knife show

    Saw some old and new friends at the Milan Knife show.
    Here is a pic of Myself, Peli Valerio, Manrico Torcoli and Gianfranco Pedersoli.




    Here are some works by Italian knifemaker guild members and associates:
    Manuela Gualdi incisione


    Reinhardt Schager



    Silverstrelli engraved by a Beretta engraver



    Puddu, looks to me like it was engraved by Terzi or Lepinous



    Francesca Fracassi, Myself and Firmo Fracassi.



    What a great bunch of talented folks. Always kind and gracious.

    Barry,

    How does the Milan show compare with the better knife shows in the US?

    It is the Italian knife maker guild show, so it has the best knifemakers from Italy and a few other countries.
    There are no dealers tables.
    It is an excellent show, not a huge show, in the USA it would be a small to medium sized show, but the best italian makers are there.
    And some of them are very hot right now, Emmanuel Esposito, for instance. I was hoping to win an Esposito in the drawing, but I did not get it. And he had a " Bid up" piece also, it went for in excess of 10,000 euro, I believe it was 12,000 euro final price.
    It was very nice to see these engravers all in one place, I had met them all before in their studios, it was a pleasant surprise to see them all there.

    That Silvestrelli Persian is amazing. His dagger is quite the knife too. What is the approximate blade length?

    I am not sure Martin, 2 3/4 or 3 inch I would guess.
