The knife exhibition of the CIC in MilanThe knife exhibition of the CIC in Milan.

Every year in the last weekend of November or in the first weekend of December the exhibition of knives of the CIC Italian Knife Corporation is held in Milan where the masters and associates of the corporation participate.

On this occasion you can see among the best Italian and international makers who exhibit their creations for two days at the CIC knife exhibition in Milan.

Unfortunately both the 2020 and 2021 edition of the exhibition have jumped due to the pandemic!

Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 November 2022 will be held the 24th show of the C.I.C.

The reasons for the success of the Milanese event are many.

Let’s start from the place where the event has always taken place.

The city of Milan has the great advantage of being easily accessible both from Europe and from all continents with direct air flights.

Its receptivity and international vocation allow exhibitors and all collectors and visitors to enjoy a pleasant stay in many respects: Milan enjoys the reputation of a dynamic city, the Italian capital of business and fashion, kind and hospitable.

Traditionally the exhibition takes place on the last weekend of November, when the city is already ready for pre-Christmas shopping, one more reason to visit the Lombard capital.

The Melià Hotel offers one of the most prestigious halls for environment and architecture and, not negligible aspect, allows knife makers and visitors to take advantage of spaces and services that make their stay at the Show pleasant.

With an apparently counter-current philosophy, the Board of directors of the C.I.C. has chosen to reserve the participation in the show exclusively to artisan knife makers and this feature, almost unique worldwide, has led to a greater interest of collectors who now come from all parts of the world.

The quality of the participants is truly remarkable, not only because the Italian Masters are of excellent caliber, but also because the skilful mixture with the foreign Masters creates a competition and a particular interest.

For some years now, the exhibition has also organized an exhibition of collectible knives built by the founding fathers of artistic cutlery (Randall, Schmidt, Moran) made available by Italian and foreign collectors who thus offer their contribution to the value of the event.

Thanks to all these reasons, over the years an atmosphere of hospitality and cordiality has been created that distinguishes the Milan show and gives it the flattering fame it enjoys.

The knife exhibition of the CIC in Milan this year 2019 will take place on Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 December 2019 and will be the 23rd show of the C.I.C.

The reasons for the success of the Milanese event are many and represents a worldwide event and the most important exhibition of handmade and custom knives in Italy.

The place where the event has always taken place is the city of Milan which has the great advantage of being easily accessible both from Europe and from all continents with direct flights and easily with trains or other means of transport.

Milan enjoys the reputation of a dynamic city, the Italian capital of business and fashion, kind and hospitable.

Traditionally the exhibition takes place on the last weekend of November but often falls on the first weekend of December.

The “counter-current” philosophy of the CIC exhibitionThe knife exhibition of the CIC in Milan coltellimania.com

With a philosophy apparently against the current but that I share, the Board of directors of the C.I.C. has chosen to reserve participation in the show exclusively to associated and certified artisan knife makers.

This feature, which is almost unique worldwide, has created a strong interest in collectors of custom knives who now come from all over the world to attend such a niche event.

The quality of the participants is of the highest level, not only because the Italian Masters are of excellent caliber and certified by the CIC itself, but also because the skilful mixture with the foreign Masters creates a competition and a particular interest.

Italian Knife Makers Associated with the Italian Coltellinai Corporation – CIC

CIC Italian Guild of Knife Makers

The Italian Coltellinai Corporation was founded in 1996 by five partners with the aim of safeguarding the artisan knife intended as an object of art and creating the first Milanese custom knife show.

The growing success of the event stimulates the attention of the most famous knife makers who see Milan as a fundamental meeting point for masters of the sector.

Today the show of the Italian Coltellinai Corporation, which takes place as usual on the last weekend of November, is considered one of the most important in the world.
