Mel Fassio Custom Knives

Mel Fassio

“I lost a knife and couldn’t find the same style, so I read an article in a magazine and decided to give knifemaking a try,” Mel Fassio relates. From those humble beginnings in the early 1970’s, Mel has branched out into building folding knives and studying engraving. “I studied engraving to make my knives the best I could,” Mel is a member of the Montana Knifemakers association and lives in Lolo, Mt.
