Some years later, he makes the decision to start his own business in Heraklion city, where he teaches his son his trade. In the seventies, Nikolaos Palamianakis starts to produce a new design on the knives and daggers, inspired by Cretan mythology and tradition. In 2002, a new factory is established in Hamoprina, Heraklion. That factory is filled by state of the art machines which in combination with the traditional techniques, produces new products.
