Handicraft “collectors knives” because they are works of art
Scarperia, like Toledo and Sheffield, is one of the oldest places for prestigious blade productions. Still today they are made in the shops by master knife-makers. Among them is Saladini who produces exclusive objects of great tradition but with new and refined styles.
The starting point is the traditional shapes, to which are applied up to the minute technology and a refined design. So laser work helps achieve a perfect cut of the blade and the use of the best stainless steel. But together with technology there is also the handicraft of the artisans so the collector’s knives get put together and refined by hand, one at a time, and sometimes forged on the anvil.
The classical shapes of Tuscan knives have been renovated in their design and in some cases enriched with details such as the tower of Scarperia, and hand engravings. The structural part has also been updated so as to increase the functionality co that these knives can last for centuries, in fact these objects, like jewels, are passed from one generation to the other and in time they become always more precious just like small masterpieces
destined for the antique market.
So, buying a Collectors knife by Saladini signifies making a small investment which is destined to increase its value in time. Toscana Lovers has chosen for you some particularly prestigious models with an ox corn or olive handle. Among these are the “Rasolino tagliasigari” (cigar cutter) and the “Coltello rustico da bistecca” (rustic steak knife) unique pieces which can make your dinner table or coffee table more elegant.
