Fantoni is a high end Italian knife manufacturer. Founded by Renzo Fantoni, and based in Maniago with fellow Italian knife companies LionSteel and Viper, Fantoni has been quietly producing some of the best knives on the market. They have collaborated with a number of designers including Chris Reeve, William Harsey, and Dmitry Sinkevich.
I have had the pleasure of meeting the Fantoni family at blade show a few years. Their knives have a quality all of their own. Precise machining and tolerances, high end materials, and imaginative designs. Fantoni only produces limited quantities of their knives, and they are available exclusively at KnifeArt here in the United States.
