Sleek Cutipol cutlery is made by a family-owned company in the village of São Martinho de Sande, Portugal. The practical and refined design is based around a judicious selection of raw materials and ergonomicshapes. In a sector such as cutlery, where classical design and materials have dominated for decades, Cutipol sees it as essential to present a diverse, modern range of cutlery. Although modern machinery is used for much of the initial work, the old traditional craftsmanship still plays a major role. Available at www.amara.co.uk from £126 for a 24 piece collection.
