Blacksmith Art and Cutlery Museum – Maniago
Open all year long. The story of cutlery and knife makers in the city of the knife.
The Blacksmith Art and Cutlery Museum is located in Friuli, in Maniago, in the former industrial Plant of Co.Ri.Ca.Ma. (United knives’ factories of Caslino and Maniago).
Since the fifteenth century Maniago was known for craftmanships and artisan cutlery, and when the factory opened in 1907 it employed hundreds of people until it closed in 1972.
In 2009 the municipality of Maniago bought and renovated the building that has become the Blacksmith Art and Cutlery Museum and tells the story and the local and industrial blacksmith production of cutting objects through images, tools, environments and faces of knife makers.
The museum is on two floors and the exhibition is divided into 7 sections, starting from the first iron bars up to industry and modern metalworking techniques for the creation of cutting tools.
