ABOUT THE MAKER
Balistreri, Vincenzo
I was born in Lampedusa, a small island near Sicily, Italy. I started as a custom knifemaker gradually. Before starting with knives, I have had experience with other art forms, like sculpting and painting, taking part to shows and exhibitions of the Alitalia's art group. In year 2003, I received a copy of the Italian magazine 'Coltelli' (Knives) and my interest in this form of art rose. I asked myself the question, possibly a rhetorical one: 'if all those people can, using their skills and some imagination, create these wonderful knives, could I do that as well?'. The answer to this question came later. I took part to my first exhibition in year 2004, where I displayed my first creation, a new take on the Anconetano knife. Later, in year 2006, I achieved the status of Maestro coltellinaio (Master Knifemaker) from the CIC (Italian Knivemakers Corporation). The thing I appreciate the most in my work is the constant research and development of new mechanisms, to ensure that my products are not only aesthetically pleasant but also well-working.
