Here is the story of Mac Coltellerie:
The craftsmanship that had developed in Maniago in ancient times has grown and developed in to what it is today.
It was in these surroundings during the 1920's the business began, when Di Bon Giovanni, at that time 14 years old, started manufacture knives.
In 1936, Giovanni, along with other partners, created a small factory that worked for other knife manufacturers.
In 1958, his son Roberto also entered in partnership.
In 1964, the present Mac Coltellerie was founded and production was focused towards the classic, little knives for souvenirs.
With the help of Roberto's experience in sports, Mac made its first pass in creating other types of knives. Around 1978, the first hunting and diving knives were produced. At this point, the company started a process of expanding the production of diving knives and starting to produce nautical, fishing and rescue knives. With the growth in production, a bigger factory was needed and in 1984, Mac moved to the factory to where it is today.
In 2003, Roberto's son Matteo joined to take part in his business, bringing a major computerization to the business.
Thanks to a vast machinery yard and specific up-to-date equipment, Mac Coltellerie develops the whole production process in its factory.
