Overview

ABOUT US At the start of the 20th century, George Palamianakis learns the art of making knives in Chania town on the island of Crete. Some years later, he makes the decision to start his own business in Heraklion city, where he teaches his son his trade. In the seventies, Nikolaos Palamianakis starts to produce a new design on the knives and daggers, inspired by Cretan mythology and tradition. In 2002, a new factory is established in Hamoprina, Heraklion. That factory is filled by state of the art machines which in combination with the traditional techniques, produces new products.
