From the time the fund Pasinetti, it's been more or less fifty years. It called that place via Magenta, in the heart of Scarborough, where the brothers Councils opened their activities.
Louis, then in his early twenties and Henry, a few years younger, were engaged in the production of knives for many years but under a boss, as they used to say then, in that same firm where their father, since the early the '900 were dedicated to the manufacture and construction of knives pattada and grafting knives.
The middle of the last century, while young people were leaving the beautiful but skimpy green landscapes of Mugello to seek better opportunities in nearby Florence, the Consigli brothers and their friend Marcello Azzini, joined forces and the first letters of their surnames giving life to Conaz. The fund Pasinetti, with a forge, a hand barbell for cutting steel and even a coal furnace to temper, was their first theater.
Around the mid-60s, to meet the consistent demand from the Sardinian market, the Conaz began to diversify production.
On the one hand, robust and practical knives (with finishes also revolutionary for its time) and on the other models very valuable, as the pattada horn polished with mirror polished blade, which was obtained by mixing glue and fine emery (with a 'operation called the caricar the rota). Even then, while he was riding the new trend generated by the boom in plastics, it is kept with care one way of making knives that you could tell was going disappearing and therefore needed to be guarded jealously.
The polished horn was the hallmark of a superior quality; for shaping the horn they began to use the fire instead of the paraffin, thus obtaining an effect of compaction of the layers that compose it and reducing the possibility of flaking that it is at the origin of the defects of the handles.
The years passed; tempering air, obtained by spreading the blades on the cold floor, gave way to temper oil, more practical and more accurate.
The ancient methods of working were passed down carefully but with a limited number of models altogether.
The revival of interest in the most authentic roots of the ancient art of cutting tools, these artisans of Conaz the drive to extend their repertoire drawing liberally to Scarperia tradition alive. The Florence, Siena, the Maremma, the Rasolino, models that made them famous and which today are the pride of many fans and collectors, were now a reality.
Currently, in addition to production models typical Italian, a perfect synthesis of tradition, technique, elegance and sophistication is matched cutlery dining rooms and kitchen finely finished employing noble materials such as bovine horn, buffalo horn and the olive tree. The total commitment of the Consigli family is aimed at enhancing the craftsmanship, the maintenance of the values of craftsmanship and tradition and the continuing work of diffusion of the elements that can make people appreciate these objects. Today Luigi Tips reached deserved retirement, Henry is joined by his sons Pietro and Elena. They are entrusted with the task of preserving the centuries-old craft tradition of family to give new impetus to the ideals from which, half a century ago, in the depths Pasinetti, was born Conaz.
