Thanks, Eileen71. On weekends we don´t work in production, but you can visit the workshop and, probably, we could explain the production line. In Winter we usually close on Sunday. Enjoy your knives!!

Great news, SP. We usually open the Sundays in the morning, without production, but the September 18 will probably close. So, our timetable for the Monday 19 is 10:00-14:00 and 16:00-19:00. We hope then your visit, thanks.
