Ancestral knowledge perpetuated up to this day, the art of fabricating knives here in Corsica has always been a way of life.

At one stage, exchanges with neighbouring islands within the Mediterranean, was common practise too. In each village, there were several blacksmiths and this was quite some time before the industrial age, which is also why there can be notable differences as regards names, and forms depending on regions.
