The Medici family was very rich, they all loved art an exclusive, precious things. For this reason Tuscany was full of great artists – such as Michelangelo or Leonardo – and of extraordinary artisans who worked with wood, ceramics…and iron. The best production of swords and knives was in Scarperia, in a town 30km from Florence that became famous like Toledo and Sheffield for their “sharp blades”.
To guarantee the quality of the knives from Scarperia in 1538 a Statute was written. The Scarperia artisans supplied knives to the king, and noble families all over Europe and now many of them are exhibited all over the continent.

STEAK KNIVES, STYLE AND TRADITION FROM SCARPERIA
The design of these knives recalls the historic form of those from Scarperia; the best iron is used, where an up-to-the minute laser technology is applied to obtain millimetric perfection in the cut. To these modern equipment must be added the artisanal manual skill of the “Maestri coltellinai” (master knife makers).
Other than the table knives the Scarperia artisans make also collectors knives refined with silver engraved bands. Among the more modern accessories are the knives with handles of different colours and woods: olive, boxwood, wenge, yew wood, oak, and paddock.
