The corporate brand DUE ANCORE® was registered in 1912 by Beltrame family, who focused its activities in the manufacturing of farming tools since the end of 19th century.

In the 1953 Coltellerie Marcello Beltrame were born thanks to the experience and the passion for the working of steel handed down over four generations. The company, specialized in building tools, became soon leader in the production of professional knives for butchery and kitchen.

Over the last few years the company has implemented its collection with two new ranges of top-flight knives, Lux and Lamami which are characterized by eco-sustainability materials, exclusive design and an unmistakable style: the Italian Style. 100% Made In Italy.

Maniago is the “city of knives”.

Maniago is a small city located in the Friuli Venezia Giulia region of Northeastern Italy, between the Adriatic Sea and the Dolomite mountains. It dates back to the Roman period and in subsequent years the territory was under the region of the Venetian Republic and the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Our city is renowned all over the world fot its production of knives, an activity which started around the 15th century due to its proximity to the city of Venice; the Venetian Republic allowed the old blacksmiths of Maniago to use streams to manufactured steel at the trip hammers. During that period work began on the making of halberds for the army, while in subsequent centuries production became more varied… Presently, within the municipality of Maniago, kitchen, hunting, sports knives are produced, along with industrial blades, gardening scissors and corkscrews.
