These Egg Scissors are made in the Italian village of Premana, a place renowned for its production of premium cutting tools. This craftsmanship began in Premana back in the 12th century when the local people discovered iron in the surrounding mountains and artisans began producing weapons for members of the Milanese aristocracy. Fast-forward to Italy’s economic boom of the 1950s, when the production of knives and scissors flourished. Today in Premana there are nearly 130 cutting tool companies in a town of only 2,000 inhabitants.
