The local river made this industry possible by powering the knife making. Hard to believe how many specialty knives, scythes, scissors etc for hunting, defense, harvest, grape tending, sewing, you name it!! Some info in England sh was helpful.

Maniago was the Italian capital for knives manufacturing for the past couple hundreds year and the museum displays original equipment and tools from the years past. Exhibits are very well presented and the knifes collection most impressive!
