Spreading Knives

In the Pre-Hispanic times when civilizations occupied what is now the American Continent; stood near obsidian, since this stone was of great value. The volcanic glass is worked with masters by the artisans from Tequila, Jalisco, to replicate what was their ancestors used to do for obtaining thin blades as the ones that create this collection. Involving the work with the Master Artisan and the thermal properties of this mineral we are able to have this collection of four knives for spreading.
