My name is Andrea Lecca and I live in Arbus, a town known for the tradition of the Sardinian knife.
I loved the creation of handcrafted knives, and I made my first knife when I was just 12 following the advice of the skilled artisans of the time.
Today I make knives in my artisan workshop, which is located next to my house, in the best tradition of “home and shop”
I make my knives with two distinct manufacturing structures:
– monolithic that is with the handle formed by a single block of horn or wood material
– animated or with the handle formed by two material grips and separated by a metal core or bow, also in horn or wood
The shapes of the blade are that of the classic variants of my land:
– Arburesa with the wide blade
– Pattadese with the narrow blade
– Lametta that is without point.
There are many variations starting from the shape up to more complex processes involving inlays, sculptures or damask blades.
