In fact, ARANYIK villagers did not make knives and swords, but the village was the centre of that area where a big market and local casinos were established. People from its nearby villages called “ Ton Poe “ and “ Phai Nong “ the REAL manufacturers – brought their products to sell at the market. However, since knives and swords were sold in this village, people have called them “ ARANYIK knives “ until now.
N.V.ARANYIK was founded 30 year ago by Mr.Niwat Wangsilabat, whose family was from Phai Nong village and have been making knives and other cutlery for many generations. It can be said that he was the real inheritor of ARANYIK legends. Moreover, he also initiated new types of handmade cutlery and tableware whose holders are made as those of big knives used in hard works.
