"My story as a knife-maker started when I got passionate aboute blades at the age of 7 years old. I grew-up with this passion for knives from different brands and I decided to draw and make my own knives.
I started my professional training under the supervision of a great traditional Corsican knife-maker, M. Christian Moretti then jumped into modern cutlery with training from François Bignon. My custom knives begin their existence in my mind then drawn on paper before being made in my workshop.
It really is important for me to build every parts of my custom knives in order to master every important steps.
Today, thanks to all the people who share this passion, being able to live and work for my passion as a knife-maker makes me feel so lucky".
The Telum prototype appeared at the end of 2020 and we were immediately won over. This small knife has a clearly tactical or self-defense vocation, but it will also appeal to a wider public who will use it on outings in nature or at work.
Its compact size and lightweight allow the Telum to be truly discreet while remaining a formidable sharp tool. Its blade is made of M390 steel and is double-edged, part of which is serrated.
Its grip is designed to be intuitive and comfortable while having a firm and secure grip thanks to the micarta canvas handle. This material is effective in all circumstances, including in a humid environment.
The Bastinelli Creations Telum comes with a kydex sheath incorporating a belt clip and in a Pelicase-style case which further enhances the knife.
