 Lelle Floris is a Sardinian craftsman born in Ghilarza. He belongs to the third generation of a family of knife makers and gunsmiths who are very well known in Sardinia. He began to build knives of various types from an early age with preference for stilettos, switchblades and ancient historical types, both Italian and Spanish from different periods of the last two centuries. The creation of these knives in particular is the result of a careful study of the originals and their size, materials, weight as well as their construction techniques. All processes faithfully reflect what was done by the skilled craftsmen of that time. He obviously chooses carbon steel for the blade in order to have the distinctive patina of antiquity that it forms over the years. For the handles only natural materials are used, such as bone, horns, ivory and wood. The use of machines is limited exclusively to a bench drill and to very few others, the rest is done entirely by hand with simple tools. Each creation is therefore unique and unrepeatable. His knives are appreciated by collectors around the world, especially from the United States, Russia, Germany and Austria

Lorenzo Gamba was born in Marone (Brescia, Italy) on 1954.When he was only 16 years old, with the help of his uncle, he was introduced to the art of engraving. He attended the engraving workshop of Cesare Giovanelli and had lessons with the greatest engravers. There he learned numerous techniques, such as fine English scrollwork and gold-inlay. He also learned the fundamental techniques for drawing on firearms. Every piece of work is a new project. First of all a drawing is made on paper, so as to give the customer a visual idea of what the final engraving will be. The customer can make a choice of engravings with different techniques, depending on the subjects required, ranging from animals of every kind to portraits etc. Lorenzo Gamba engraves on shotguns and rifles, as well collectors’ knives, and gold inlay (on any type of material) for the gunmakers in Gardone V.T. (Brescia) - U.S.A. - England - Russia - Ukraine - Sweden - Germany - Austria - Belgium - Spain and others.
