  • Hello From New York

    Hi all. Brutally cold here, but I would think that wherever you are in the land down under, it is warm and sunny. This is my first time here and I have a question that I am hoping someone here can answer. Many years back, I had the pleasure of meeting Marcello Pedini, a master engraver of considerable talent. When he first came to NY, he had engraved many knives for me and we even shared a table at the New York Knife Show. A few years later, I lost touch with Marcello and have searched all this time till I found his name and that he is now in Australia and still engraving. Is there anyone here who is familiar with Marcello and who could provide an address so that I may contact him and renew the friendship? I would be much appreciative.

    Hi NYGuy it is not too hot here only 41 degrees but that is Celsius nearly 106 degrees F.
    I do recall the engraver being here somewhere in Victoria I think Peter Del Raso uses his services, message Peter here on this forum.

    here is a link

      Its about 17 degrees here and a wind chill that makes it feel just below 0! I think I would trade you for the difference. When I was researching the web, I came across the discussion about Marcello Pedini being in Victoria. That is how I got here. Thank you for the info.

          Welcome to the forum mate!
          Yep, it's pretty warm here, definately going to be over 100F tomorrow!

          Ausblade is correct, Peter Del Raso uses Marcello on a lot of his knives and has done for a number of years. Shouldn't be hard to get hold of, if you send Peter a PM, I'm sure he'll tell you how to get in touch with him.

              Gday NY Guy welcome to the Abf. I look forward to seeing some photos of your collection, and if you have some photos of the engraved knives they would be great to see.
