Story of Jezzine Haddad Cutlery Lebanon:
Originally from the city of Jezzine in southern Lebanon, traditional cutlery was born in 1770 when the Haddad family settled in this city. Its production at that time consisted of army rifles, knives and steel-bladed swords. In 1930, the Haddad family developed their business by creating cutlery with bird heads made from buffalo bones and horns. These handles were encrusted with bone and colored brass and applied to spoons, forks, knives, paper knives, daggers ...
Haddad craftsmen are highly skilled and this family's eye for Design and Style adds tremendous value.
These handcrafted creations are sought after, vibrantly painted Phoenix bird shape representing the authentic history and culture of Lebanon. Each piece is stamped "S&A Haddad" with the majestic Lebanese cedar.
This unique traditional craft is so well regarded that it was introduced by Lebanese presidents and officials to dignitaries around the world beginning with the Ottoman sultans in the 18th century.
