Cutting Tools

The Museum, inaugurated in 1999 with a newly reorganized layout, it is a part of the Mugello museum system and documents the history of one of the most widespread artisanal activities in Scarperia. The tour is divided into five sections that illustrate the history of knives, their techniques and the history of their production in Scarperia up to the present day. One part of the tour is dedicated to other types of cutting implements, such as scissors, produced in local workshop. The choice of exhibits has been guided by the idea of giving the visitor direct contact with the experience and techniques used in the construction of knives for various uses. The tour includes a teaching laboratory where the visitors can handle the various parts of a knife in order to understand its characteristics.
