The choice of precious materials, the many collaborations, the balance between innovation and tradition, the masterful craftsmanship: this is all part of Massimo Manca’s knives, unique pieces appreciated all over the world.
In 2007, Ferrari, the world-famous Italian car company, relied on Massimo for the creation of a unique set of 3 knives celebrating the 60th anniversary of the company. However, this is only a chapter of the true love story between Manca knives and the sport world: Massimo was in fact chosen by Ducati for the creation of a display blade, and again by the organization of the 2017 World Rally Championship which commissioned him a knife for the winner of the competition.
The collaborations that Massimo takes part to are of the highest level, inside and outside the sports. Massimo’s extraordinary ability to shape materials blends perfectly with the elegance and taste of a world master of design, Cesare Monti. Their collaboration gave birth to the Pattada Remastered line, an unprecedented and fascinating version of the switchblade knife. The fine level of Manca’s craftsmanship conquers even the most expert eyes: Massimo created customized sets for the Al Maktoum royal family of Dubai, for Prince Albert of Monaco, for entrepreneurs Tom Barrack and Luca Cordero di Montezemolo. Among his clients, we count the unforgettable Lucio Dalla, Beppe Zola and many others.

The collection includes, among others, a unique item: this knife has a ram’s horn handle and its 12-centimetre blade was engraved with the characteristic profile of the Burj Al Arab hotel, owned by the sheikh.
The Al Maktoum royal family was so impressed with Massimo’s craftsmanship that they requested a dedicated limited-edition line, so that it could be sold to their customers inside the Burj Al Arab: a prestigious international showcase that makes Manca knives among the most precious collections in the world.
