Welcome and thank you for passing by.
My name is Mario Leao and I am the man behind the MLL Knives.
I initially start making knives in a local bushcraft community, since 1998 have developed and design knives to friends and local enthusiasts always paying close attention to the needs field usability and performance, in 2008 adopt the MLL Knives brand and raise the business to a more serious level, thenceforth tried to improve and make different but robust knives suitable for hard work, my knives are now used by knife enthusiasts, bushcrafters, military and general users.
All the knives are handmade from scratch, using ancient forging techniques combined with the use of new steels to produce a high-quality tool, you can rely on whatever the terrain or geographical location, always ready to help in urban, jungle, desert, ocean or domestic environmental.
I mainly use two different steels, "O1" carbon steel and N690 stainless steel, in particular blades D2 or 5160 can be optional.
In all my designs give the utmost attention to details such as: strength, versatility, simplicity, comfort in use, good cutting ability and durability.
Following these principles intend to create a beauty and useful tool. I hope you feel satisfaction in the use as I feel in their production.
Making knives is a passion I do not work on mass production and rarely make two equal knives, all the photos you will see on this web page are examples of what you can get, all specs can be custom.
I work for a orders list so generally do not have knives in stock but regularly make some knives to show the work and sell in some forums, so there are two ways to buy my knives, direct order, feel free to contact me, use the ORDERS link I'll reply very soon with custom options and price, or pick up one of the knives that I'll put on sale on: Facebook, BladeForums, Blades and Bushlore, Australian Blade Forums, MesserForum.net.
