Comments: Born in Torino Italy, knife making sensation and Art Knife Invitational Member Emmanuel Esposito is already one of the finest and most talented knife makers in the world. Making knives since 2002, Emmanuel studied mechanics at school and worked in the family machine shop where he developed a love of precision machining and intricate mechanisms. The name of this remarkable model is the Rhino HT - which stands for High Tech. The butt cap is "H" and the button-lock is "T".

Emmanuel prefers natural materials such as Black and White Pearl as well as Antique Tortoise, and names Charly Bennica, Jurgen Steinau and Richard Hodgson as makers he admires. He also favors aggressive modern designs and is back-ordered one year on deliveries at the moment.

Emmanuel makes both folders and integral fixed blades, and specializes in knives that may be taken apart and that have complex mechanisms. The folders in particular feature a unique and patented ball-bearing pivot system that provides unparalleled strength regardless of blade position.

He is a member of the Italian Knife Makers Guild (Corporazione Italiana Coltellinai) and generally attends only two shows each year - the CIC in Milan and the East Coast Custom Knife Show in New York. He counts among his Knife Making friends Charly Bennica, Antonio Fogarizzu, Salvatore Puddu and Francesco Pachi ‚ sort of a ‚ who's who‚ of important European knife makers.
