The business began in the 1920s when Di Bon Giovanni, then 14, began work manufacturing knives. In 1936, Giovanni and other partners started a small factory that produced work for other knife manufacturers. In 1958, Giovanni’s son Roberto also entered in partnership. ‘Mac Coltellerie’ was founded in 1964, initially creating classical little knives for souvenirs and promo. Later in 1978 due to Roberto’s experience in sports, the company began to produce hunting and diving knives, and then nautical, fishing and rescue knives. Its popularity increased and in 1984 it expanded its operations to a bigger industrial factory where it remains today. Continuing what is truly a family business, Roberto’s son Matteo joined the operation in 2003.
Mac Coltellerie handles the whole production process of its knives in its factory. This ensures those choosing Mac get the best quality product which is proudly made in Italy.
