De Bartolomeo, Pasquale
Growing up with a passion for firearms and knives, Pasquale De Bartolomeo started making knives as an hobby in 2009....Pasquale has undertaken this art completely as an autodidact and what he has learned is mainly due to experience, errors and experimentation.
He mainly creates robust blades with a generous size, preferring to employ stainless steels such as RWL34, M390, S90V, S110V, S125V and Elmax, but sometimes Pasquale also uses damascus or sanmai inox. For handles he generally employs natural materials such as stabilized burls, but he doesn't exclude the use of synthetic materials such as carbon fiber and micarta.
Pasquale generally doesn't make knives on commission, preferring to realize his own designs according to his personal taste and depending on the predilection for certain blade types.The particular thing is that Pasquale creates his works with only one arm because he lost the use of his left arm in a motorcycle accident in 1991 .... He never gave up and thinks everything is possible with the will......
