My Work

Unique handcrafted replicas

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.

 

My job:

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.

 

Materials used:

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
