I am the eldest son of Don Zaccagnino. I learned the craft from my father starting in the early 1970's. I took over after poor health forced Dad to stop, my wife and I now own the shop and home that Dad built. We have been making knives since 1969. I was forced to "retire" from making knives due to many health issues. I still like to fool around in the shop making leather wrist cuffs and sheaths for my pocket knife collection. I also make key fobs from some of my left over knife handle material. It gets me out in the shop a little bit.
