Pallarès was founded in 1917 in the small town of Solsona, Spain by brothers Luís & Carles Pallarès Canal, knife-makers and craftsmen. The family company was continued & expanded under the leadership of brothers Jesus and Juli Pallarès, sons of Lluís, master craftsmen. Today cousins David and Lluís Pallarès, the third generation, continue to head the company. The goal of the founders which still holds good today is to maintain the quality of the product...especially it's cutting quality, a fundamental characteristic of the best knives. Pallarès knives continue to be hand fashioned using high quality carbon steel & elegantly set with locally sourced boxwood handles. A selection of Pallarès goods are available from the Otis & Otto online store here.
