Corsica is a real land of knives since antiquity and the Corsican cutlery industry has become a real tradition. 

There is no such thing as a "Corsican knife" but "Corsican knives"! 

Like many farming areas, the Corsican knife was first and foremost a tool used by farmers for their daily work. 

Since then, Corsican knives have followed their history with new models that combine tradition and modernity.
