Hello! My name is Edoardo, I welcome you to my personal website, you are free to wander through the pages, you will find pages on different topics, open the one that most intrigues you and have fun! If you want to know something more about me, keep reading!

Class 1996, since I was born I have always been a “handy guy”, one that never stands still and does a bit of everything. Over the years I have cultivated a lot of passions with a predominance for the “artistic” ones, already when I was three years old I enjoyed drawing and building objects made of paper and cardboard, using rolls and rolls of adhesive tape.

Then growing up I passed to more interesting materials, I started during the elementary school to work with plywood, building models of towers and castles, then towards the middle school i began to build replicas of film objects and videogames made out of fiberglass, papier-mache and some plastic materials, and I finally approached working on some metals.

Towards the end of high school I got passionate about knives, I don’t know what drove me to knives but they always been somthing that I liked.

So experiment after experiment, runined blade after ruined blade, mistake after mistake… I learned to build a knife starting from raw materials.

The passion grew quickly and after school I decided to try to turn this passion into a job, so piece by piece I started to build my own small workshop and within a year I learned to work with different machines: belt sanders, press drills, polishers, sandblasters, tempering ovens, tumblers etc.

After a while, however, feeling limited by the manual processes alone, I decided to buy a manual milling machine and turn it into a numerical control machine.

So armed with ball screws, inductive sensors, drivers, stepper motors (etc.) and joining the knowledge accumulated over the years in electronics and mechanics and after 6-7 months I completed the conversion.

Obviously in order to work with a CNC machine it was necessary to learn how to design a 3D model.

So I started studying and thanks to many video tutorials on YouTube and a Dear friend of mine who teached me, I learned to design first on Rhinoceros 3d then onto a parametric cad like Autodesk Fusion 360.

So after months of work I managed to make a knife that had many parts worked with my milling machine.

Precision parts that I could not built by hand.

Unfortunately, the business never kick-started and after some hard months I decided to look for a job as an employee.

Fortunately, the knowledge I had acquired allowed me to quickly find a job as a cad designer and cnc operator.

Now that some years have passed and I changed some jobs, I work as a Mechanical Designer in a custom led lighting company based in the Arezzo province.

So the mechanics and modeling are my daily bread and my new workplace allows me to design amazing things that I would never have tought I could do.

The knifemaking and the simple “making” of artistic things remains a hobby that I love and keep alive in my free time.

But.. Who knows what the future could bring?

Stay tuned!
