Is this shop able to ship kitchen knives to the United States? I am visiting there in September and worry that I will not be able to bring a knife back on the plane. Can it be sent to me by mail?

Great news, SP. We usually open the Sundays in the morning, without production, but the September 18 will probably close. So, our timetable for the Monday 19 is 10:00-14:00 and 16:00-19:00. We hope then your visit, thanks.

Can I send Mariano the money for a couple of knives (via Visa or Paypal) and get them sent to me in the US? I bought a small one there last year and it is the best knife I ever had.
