News — Carbon Steel
Our complete collection of Catalonian cutlery is back in stock.
Once upon a time, dozens of artisan blacksmiths handcrafted exquisite steel cutlery in the the walled city of Solsona, located about 75 miles northwest of Barcelona. Known as the Guild of Saint Eligius—after the patron saint of metalworkers—their finely tempered and exceptionally sharp knives were prized throughout Catalonia.
Now, you will only find only one remaining knifemaker—Cuchilleria Pallarès—forging cutlery in this enclave in the southern foothills of the Pyrenees. Rest assured, though, that the tradition endures. The knives that emerge from the workshops of Pallarès Solsona still meet the exacting standards established long ago by the Guild of Saint Eligius and carry a pedigree that is centuries in the making.
