Since one hundred years in the small village of Azaruja in Alentejo, Portugal, the Franzina family passes along from generation to generation its unique cutlery know-how. At the time, the grand father of today’s owners, was looking for a complementary revenue as he had many children to feed. He started recycling the used blades from the cork factory he worked for to make kitchen and table knives. His success started with his family and friends and quickly reached out all the villages in the region. This is how Joaquim Franzina’s cutlery tradition started and still lives up until today.
