As early as 1937, Claude Pitelet had the seahorse registered as a trademark of the smithy. In 2008, Cyril Ganivet took over the smithy and has taken it under the new name ARTO. Chief of the production site and its young, dedicated team of knife manufaturers is Jo, who has the privilege of learning the craft of knive forging as the last apprentice of the famous Laguiole smith Angel Navarro.

Cyril leads the brand with rich tradition Arto onto new paths. Since 2013 he has been developing modern knives made at the world’s best CNC production sites, besides the classics of Laguiole and Thiers made in Thiers. Innovative and new products elate countless customers.
