Restyling logo

To celebrate the 50th anniversary (1969-2019) we introduce Prandi’s new logo, enabling us to update the continuous evolution of Prandi during this last half a century.

The typographic character is unchanged, a solid rock lasting from past generation till present time.
In fact, we kept doing what we do best cutting tools produced with care to details, quality & life span, all shown in our finished extensive lines of products, such as our well-known axes sold world-wide. Certainly, we have grown on solid basis and we never stopped adding and applying past experience to today market demands but also we kept an edge on similar competitors in both quality and competitive pricing enabling us to keep our great customers attached & loyal thanks to our conservative principals. If Customer are happy, they will keep returning!

The butterfly represents Prandi’s continuous development: the worm to chrysalis then finally open the wings to fly the world. In the upper part of the Logo, we could not miss what made us famous throughout the world: our AXES. The model we selected belongs to the Vintage Line, the first line of the Prandi brand.

With our new Logo we also underline the country of origin "ITALY", confirming that all our axes are designed and manufactured entirely inside our premises in Primaluna as a proof of our total commitment to reliability and quality of Made in Italy.
