The ancient medieval town of Scarperia, founded in 1306 has fully earned its name as the “town of knives”. Ever since it was founded, the town has always shown its particular talent for crafting “cutting tools” and this ancient art form has made the town famous the world over. This tradition dates back to the 15th century, when the first “Master Knifemakers” published their “Statutes”, which even back then aimed to safeguard and organize the production process and trade of knifes. The first traces of the Saladini knifemakers date back to the mid-19th century, when a population census by the parish church of Fagna in Scarperia shows us that the Saladini family were crafting knives as Master Knifemakers. Since then, generations of knifemakers have followed in their footsteps and today Saladini continues to create products with the same passion and traditions. This heritage is clear to see in the styles of Saladini's forged knives, in their choice of high-quality materials, attention and care to every detail, and also in our continuous innovation and research, which has allowed the company to evolve while always looking towards the future. However, Saladini never forgets he real added value of this great craftsmanship which lives on in the company. In fact, by combining this inherent knowledge with their taste for design and awareness of modern market needs, the Coltelleria Saladini has been able to expand their production with a full range of offers. Alongside their series of traditional knives, Saladini offer a wide range of table and kitchen knives, table accessories, cutlery, corkscrews and cigar cutters. Saladini's entirely handcrafted production has always offered quality materials and original products.
