ABOUT THE MAKER
Berardo, Eduardo
Eduardo Berardo a Brazilian knifemaker, met the great cutler Luciano Dornelles during a vacation trip to the Serra Gaúcha, in the city of Nova Petrópolis, Brazil in December 2004. Luciano, seeing the interest of the visitor, was predisposed to, as far as possible, guide his apprenticeship, who lived 1400 kilometers from him. In January 2005 Berardo began the construction of his gas forge. His first anvil was a piece of train track, stuck precariously over a wooden block. He completed his first knife in January. Dornelles patiently guided Berardo on the telephone, who continued persistently in his experiments, managing to produce his first knives. In April 2005 he returned to his Master's workshop and spent 2 weeks just watching him work. Back in Catanduva, he manually built his first sander, restarting the production of his knives, now with much more technical requirements. At the end of the same year of 2005, in his first participation in cutlery events, Berardo conquered, with his 16th made knife, the Prize of Best Beginner Cutlery at the São Paulo Knife Show.
