Pallares is the last surviving workshop in an area one-time famous (since the 1600’s) for its knife making workshops. The third-generation run company founded by two brother in Solsona. Spain in 1917, Pallares strives to use traditional, high-quality materials and have always been known for well tempered steel.
Their knives are completely hand ground and assembled and have wonderful cutting feel and good edge retention. Please note, these can have cosmetic scratches or small imperfections in handles which will not impede the performance of the knife. This is par for the course on these knives and is part of how they sell them for a very reasonable price.
All Pallares knives are sharpened before they leave the shop and also come with a First Free Sharpening Card.
