Comments: Born in Torino Italy, knife-making sensation 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 "White Fang", one of Emmanuel's impossible to find sold-out limited editions. Fabulous Gold Mokume inlays are pared with the proprietary Button-lock release to produce a knife of unprecedented elegance and panache.

This knife is no longer available and is one of our own personal Esposito favorites. Astonishing high-end watch-level finishing makes it clear why Emmanuel has been selected as a member of the Art In Metal (AIM) one of the world's most prestigious knife shows.

We have absolutely no idea how this remarkable work is done and we hope you will agree there is absolutely nothing like it anywhere! When was the last time you were able to say that about a custom knife?

Emmanuel prefers natural materials such as Black and White Pearl as well as Antique Amber, 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 integrally 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.
