Mac Cotellerie Knives
Italian Made Spearfishing and Scuba Diving Knives
The handicraft activity that had developed in Maniago already in ancient times and had started to grow and develop in what today is a true and proper industry specialized in knives and cutting tools. It was in these surroundings that during the 1920s our business began when Di Bon Giovanni, at that time 14 years old, started to work manufacturing knives. In 1936, Giovanni, together 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 that oriented its production towards
the classical little knives for souvenirs and promotions.
Afterwards, Mac made its first passes in creating other types of knives thanks to Roberto’s experience in sports.
Thus, around 1978, the first hunting and diving knives were produced. And at this point, our company started a process of variety, enlarging the production of diving knives and starting to make nautical, fishing and rescue knives. With the growing production firm a bigger factory was needed and in 1984,
Mac moved to the industrial zone where it is today.
In 2003, Roberto’s son Matteo joined to take part in his business, bringing 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: Carrying out its own moulds for the moulding presses and blanking presses. This guarantees to the clients of Mac a product of 100% quality Made in Italy.
