Herdmar Knives - Embodying Generations of Craftsmanship and Dedication

Herdmar, one of the oldest cutlery brands, has its roots deeply entwined with a bygone era of craftsmanship and dedication. Born in 1911, the same generation as the great-grandfather of the Bright Kitchen's founder, the brand has stood the test of time through the hands of skilled artisans and their unwavering commitment. Hailing from the city of Guimarães, where cutlery-making has been a tradition for generations, Herdmar continues to adorn tables worldwide, sharing moments of joy and happiness. Bright-Kitchen, now in its fourth generation, proudly carries forward the legacy of Taipas' finest cutlery to the global market, with Herdmar being a prominent and cherished addition.

In the early 20th century, when everything was meticulously handcrafted, true audacity was required to stand out. Herdmar emerged as a beacon of quality and artistry, under the guidance of the esteemed Mr. Marques, a mere three years after the founding of the founder's great-grandfather. Through the years, the craft was passed down through successive generations in the city of Guimarães, preserving the essence of Taipas' cutlery artistry. Today, Bright-Kitchen, representing the fourth generation, carries the timeless excellence of these cutlery traditions to customers worldwide.
