www.a-work-of-art.net Art Elwell's lineup may look outdated, but I think he carries everything. He also sells Lutels. Send him an email and he'll let you know what he has in stock and what is on the way.


There used to be a number of Del Tin Vendors in North America, but just about all of them dropped the line. Of course one can now order directly from the Del Tin website.

Similarly, Donnie Shearer of The Mad Piper used to use Del Tin blades for his basket hilts, though I can't find that reference on his website anymore.

He refers to Del Tin in the middle of the opening page. To quote, "The blades I use are made by Del Tin a known producer of quality blades since the middle 1600's".

I didn't know Del Tin was around that long....

It sounds like someone is taking a little artistic license there. Wasn't Del Tin founded by Fulvio's father?
