The Saladini mezzaluna (translates to half-moon) might take some getting used to. It is the most striking utensil in our kitchen, and it was perhaps a bit intimidating when we first started using it. However, very soon after putting it to use and mastering our mincing technique, we found that this beautiful knife is just as much a well-designed tool as it is an art piece. The perfect tool for mincing garlic, herbs and vegetables. The handle is made of Tuscan olive wood.

Coltelleria Saladini

While dining in Verona at I 12 Apostoli, we fell in love with the tableware and had to track it down. It turned out to be hand made by the craftsmen of the Saladini family in Scarperia just north of Florence.

This cutlery is some of the most beautiful you will find anywhere and while we have a wide selection of their knives available online, we have access to their entire catalog of products. If there is a particular knife that you know of and you don't see it here, just send us an Email and we will let you know when we can get it for you.

Scarperia is an ancient medeival village built by the Florentine Republic in the 14th century. It is known as "the town of knives" and justifiably so as the art of manufacturing fine knives has been ongoing since the village was first settled. Their knives use the highest quality stainless steel and natural materials such as ox horn, water buffalo horn and Tuscan olive wood for their handles.

If cared for properly, these knives will give years of pleasure. For best results, please hand wash only and dry shortly after washing.
