Rigor, precision, these are the keywords of Enrico Crippa.
I remember the first encounter with him, a disaster, I had to face a challenge, just one knife in a limited edition of 10 pieces.
In next meetings, the project began to take shape, I learned to listen to him, and got an important lesson, not only professionally but also humanly. During these two years of work and comparison my growing enthusiasm led me to create a shortlist of 20 blades, among which the chef could choose the 10 that he liked most so that they became his very personal knife. Crippa greatly liked the idea, and on the one hand I felt relieved that he could choose the knives that were more congenial to him, but on the other hand, I felt charged with the responsibility to create tools that were perfect, giving my best. That’s how his example of rigor and precision has become my guiding light that in these two years have forged – in all respects – a new way of working and thinking.
