Mel Fassio has been handcrafting knives since the early 1970's. He is a founding member of the Montana Knifemakers Association. Today, the retired 70 something still works daily on his knives and enjoys selling them at knife shows, gun shows and to repeat clientele. His well known hand engraving has been requested on guns and other pieces of metal. From heat treating his own 440C stainless steel to putting the knife together with custom made pins, Fassio’s knives are all unique to themselves.
