Tarcisio Ambrosioni, stubborn forger and scissors maker, in 1962, for health reasons, must leave his dear Premana to search for alternative solution...

The production of Pfeil carving tools is based upon  a long tradition of craftsmanship. The company was founded in 1902 in Langenthal, as a fabricator of cutting tools. Still a family-owned business, Pfeil is today managed by the third generation. Professional cutting tools and surgical instruments were primarily the first items which Pfeil manufactured. Production of the first carving tools began in 1942. Within a short time, the high quality of the tools created a great following not only among professional carvers, but also among amateurs and schools in many countries.

While this firm is not very large, it is considered one of the largest businesses in the field of wood working tools. Their product catalog features a vast selection of high quality wood carving tools.  I am convinced that carvers, sculptors and storers of wooden articles will certainly find the tools they need offered by Pfeil.
