Saladini from Scarperia Tuscany
handmade knives from the heart of Tuscany
Saladini is based in Scarperia, a town in Tuscany about 20 km from Florence. The landmark is the Palazzo Pretorio in Scarperia, with its distinctive tower. Scarperia was founded on September 8, 1306 and its peculiarity is the ancient tradition of knife making or better, "cutting irons" as these objects used to be called in old language.
Saladini wants to keep alive this ancient tradition, the artisan production of knives, cutlery and similar objects. Everything is made with that care and attention that objects deserve, which are created with love and dedication.
