Handmade Knife by Pierluigi Gulli: San Mai Technique & Tortoise Shell

The Gentleman is a handcrafted knife made of very precious materials.

The blade is made of Damascus steel using the San Mai Japanese technique, which translates to “three layer​s”. The handle is made of tortoise shell.

This knife was made by the Italian knife maker Pierluigi Gulli. Born in 1938, Gulli dedicated himself to knife making from the early years of his life. His childhood was marked by bombings and shelters and he soon had to learn how to grow up in a world without toys. It was precisely in that moment of his life that he began making knives.

Gulli is a member of the Italian Knifemakers Guild.
