@archknife - Michael Angelo Engro



I have always been captivated by handmade tools, machines, buildings and art. That overwhelming interest lead me to study Architecture at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA and for the past 20 years I have been designing, creating, painting and building things.

In my hometown of Erie, PA I met two very talented makers, both specialize in handmade knives. I began showing up at their shop regularly and photographing their work. I was immediately hooked. Days became weeks and weeks became months and as I continued to stop by the shop, what started as a way to purchase a discounted knife became a lifelong passion.

Through this website and Instagram I will be sharing that passion with as many people as possible.

My promise to my customers is to provide quality built knives with heirloom design. These are beautiful tools to be used for generations.
