Description: Argentinian knifemaker Mariano Yannoni is creating some spectacular knives. Born in 1974, Mariano is proud to belong to a generation that has brought back custom knifemaking to his country. Mariano studied under renowned master knifemaker Miguel Ángel Gugliotta. Yannoni's knives are expertly made and show a tremendous level of craftsmanship. He brings his skills to knives designed for the outdoors, daily carry, and the kitchen.
This upswept skinning knife features a hand forged blade combining a high performance 1095 carbon steel core with 420 stainless steel sides. A forge finish at the top of the blade and the dramatic transition line between the two steels makes this blade a real head turner. A high flat grind ensures this knife makes a particularly effective cut. Because this knife is made from carbon steel, we recommend oiling the blade after use with camellia oil.
Handle scales are purpleheart (Peltogyne spp.) wood. Purpleheart is highly desirable for its beautiful purple color caused by oxidation after the wood is harvested. Carbon fiber bolsters add a nice accent. The tang is enclosed by black G-10, ensuing durability with rust prevention. The hand contoured handle is extremely comfortable and provides a sure grip.
Making it easy to keep this knife close at hand, Yannoni included a custom, hand stitched leather sheath.
Exceptional work throughout!
