Luiz Gustavo Gonçalves is a professional photographer and knife-enthusiast since child. Got his first knife by the age of 5 and the passion never gone away. At the end of 2010, took classes of Introduction to Bladesmithing. During 2011 started to set his workshop, and made his first “solo” knife in the beginning of 2012.

The excelent Bladesmith Eduardo Berardo took Luiz Gustavo as student and taught him this great art, helping the work of the disciple to evolve fast.
