When I began making knives in 1988, my background as a tool and die maker helped a lot in starting the fabrication. It had given me a foundation that allowed me to overcome technical difficulties I encountered through my first experiences; and I learned a lot by improvising in my own way. I have always given great importance to the consistent quality of my creations. In my shop I have traditional machines: Lathe, milling machine, pantograph, drill press, grinder, heat treating oven and lots of files and sand papers. Being a perfectionist, I push as much as possible the tolerances and during the whole manufacturing I measure my parts so that they fall within strict criteria in terms of size, finish and hardness.
