Fachin Valentino

19 April 2015 Author : 

Valentino Fachin, Master CIC since 2007, approached the world of knives in the mid-80s, beginning his journey as knife maker in a completely self-taught way.

In 1995, a chance meeting with Gianluigi Simonella marked a turning point for Valentino; indeed with the help of Simonella, Valentino had the opportunity to be guided and educated on the basic principles of knife making.
From that point on, the maker has expanded his knowledge both about the construction techniques that the properties of materials, turning his efforts to the continuous improvement of his knives.

As he always lived in mountain country, the blades culture has always been part of Valentino's daily life and the idea to start to make knives was a very natural step for him.
His hunting and utility knives, made by stock removal, are predominantly created with blade in RWL34 steel and natural materials for the handles (deer and buffalo horns, various woods - with a preference for local woods as boxwood, laburnum, yew, oak, and so on).
