For you to form an impression of my work I have added the following photos displaying some knives with  decscriptions of the various specimens.

There are basically two different strategies for the construction of a knife: Full tang or hidden tang (half tang). I sometimes find that especially American customers tend to be somewhat apprehensive about the solidity of the hidden tang knife. Well, my position in this matter is this: Any knife can be demolished if exposed to blunt violence, but for all practical purposes the hidden tang knife is as solid and usable as the full tang one.

Some knives represent models: Special designs which have proved particularly usable and/or popular. Some of them  are Unica, signifying that they are individual creations never to be repeated, maybe because they are  meant to be singular, because they are made according to the particular customer's own sketch, or simply because the blade has been designed to fit a special, unique, and thus irreproducible piece of handle material, such as the first one I will show you:
