Traditional hands-on craftsmanship is paired with modern technology to produce these superb contemporary flatware pieces. Modern machinery is used for much of the initial work but traditional craftsmanship still plays a major role. While the use of machinery and a certain level of automation are common within the industry to facilitate consistent production and improve safety, Cutipol artisans employ their skills and expertise in forging and shaping steel, which are further refined with machines around them.
José Joaquim Ribeiro, with his brothers and sisters, has run Cutipol for three generations with a focus on solid engineering, a commitment to quality and the understanding that simple is beautiful. The company focuses its attention to detail and the very best method of manufacture, which are evident in the products. Flatware, when designed well, looks like a small cluster of precision tools: perfectly balanced, honed to an edge.
