All my knives are 100% sole authorship and completed in my home machine shop.
My name is Mike Dilluvio and I would like to welcome you to my new, updated website. I would also like to thank you for your interest in my work. I have been making custom knives since 1989 and I am former voting member of the Knifemakers Guild. I started making fixed blade knives, but since 1997, I have been making folding knives exclusively. I do 100% of my own work. I make Liner Locks, Automatics and Slip Joints.
I was born in 1960, in Detroit, Michigan and recently moved back to Michigan after 7 years in Arizona. I am a Journeyman Industrial Electrician by trade and am currently employed as a Welding/Robotics Technician. Right now, this is a part time hobby for me. Looking forward to retirement, making custom knives has always been a passion for me. I take great pride in all my work and use only the finest materials available. All knives carry a 100% guarantee of customer satisfaction. I can work from your designs or mine. Keep in mind all knives pictured in the gallery are examples of knives that have all been sold in the past. Please contact me for any custom requests you may have or a quote for that custom knife you have always wanted! I want to give special thanks to my wife Pam, for putting up with my many hours spent in the shop and supporting me all these years! I love you!
