This passion was passed down from a great master of this art, his father, Vincenzo Bissenti Flumini.
Vincenzo was born in Pirri, like his son Manolo, in the populous district of Cagliari, where he has been one of the first cutlers of this area of Sardinia called Campidano. His knives, real works of art, has always been limited and unique pieces, built only on order.

Manual dexterity, originality and passion characterize his creations, unique Sardinian knives of very high quality.
Since he was very young he joined the "Italian corporation of cutlers”.
The workshop where Manolo Flumini creates the knives is located in Pirri, in a small workshop, where with a few of raw tools and machinery, carries on his work, with the help of his brother Ivano Flumini,, which it’s also his learner, trying everyday to improve his work and his artistic techniques for this ancient art.
