Sanelli since 1863


Established in 1863 in Premana, the Italian world famous “cutlery village” lying between the Alps and Como Lake, Sanelli Ambrogio & Figli S.n.c. is an ancient factoryspecialised in the production of high quality cutlery, with both an artisan care, deriving from 140 years of experience, and the aid of the latest modern technologies. The presence of ancient iron mines in the numerous valleys around the village originated, in the course of ages, the hand-working of this metal; an intensive production of agricultural tools, instrument for zoo technical and other uses and combs for the gondolas of the near Venice Republic has been developed. Subsequently, with the start of the production of knives and scissors, the market quickly raised and the cutlery production experienced higher and higher specialization together with improving technologies, always maintaining a precious handicraft experience.
Today the company produces several lines of cutlery and kitchen tools, perfectly suitable for both professional and domestic use. The choice of the best steels, optimal finishing and cutting power, innovative design, completeness of range and the quality of the customer service are the guarantees of success and make the knives indispensable working tools.
Through a careful and constant control of the quality of the products they have implemented and they now still maintain a Quality Management System which fulfils the requirements of  UNI EN ISO 9001:2000 standards, in the production and distribution of cutlery, scissors and kitchen utensils. Their products are particularly suitable for butchers, cooks, hotel supplies and food processing, as well as for the houses where the culture of the “good food” still survives.
