I started with the few tools I had, and i quicky realize that they were more than enough.
I decided that I wanted to keep a limited and high quality production of a maximum of a few pieces per month.
I chose art over heartless mass production.
The kind of life I have chosen imposes me to take the job more calmly. I think that, if you get bored you can’t produce a masterpiece, and you can’t make each piece look its best.
I work in a totally handmade way. My reproductions are unique and largely on commission. I don’t have predefined templates; all those on the site are pieces made from paintings or models exhibited in museums or from images and drawings or taken from books ore made by clients.
Blades: harmonic steel 56Si7 with 52 Hrc hardness (56 Hrc for knives) and occasionally C70
- Guards: C40 steel forged in one piece, pierced and hot adapted on the blade
- Pommel: common iron
- Handles: wood covered with glued and stitched leather, then dyed in the required color
To achieve excellence in each piece, I choosed to collaborate with expert craftsmens for the production of parts and special processes (for example bronze parts, scabbards, etc., the external temper).
Time of realization of a replica: from 3 to 5 months approximately
