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

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 from both Europe and all continents with direct and easily air flights with trains or other means of transport.

Milan enjoys the reputation of dynamic city, 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 “countercurrent” philosophy of the CIC exhibition

With a philosophy apparently countercurrent but one that I share, the Board of the C.I.C. has chosen to reserve participation in the show exclusively to associate and certified artisan knifemen.

This feature, which is almost unique worldwide, has created a strong interest in the collectors of custom knives who come now 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 blend with the Foreign Masters creates a competition and a special interest.

Artistic knife art

For some years in the exhibition there has been an exhibition of collectible knives built by the founding fathers of the artistic knife shop (Randall, Schmidt, Moran) made available by Italian and foreign collectors who thus offer the contribute to the value of the event.

Materials suppliers

In addition, in an adjacency space in the exhibition room there is a space dedicated to the best-known dealers of steel and knife materials (handles/mosaic pin/pellami/lime/etc.) where you can directly seize the material and be able to touch and see them up close.

In addition to the materials there are also exhibitors of equipment such as tape sanders, hardening ovens for knives,etc.

Thanks to all these reasons, over the years an atmosphere of welcome and friendliness has been created that distinguishes the Milan show and gives it the prestige it enjoys.

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

The growing success of the event stimulates the attention of the most famous knifemen 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.
