About Dictum


We love crafts!

People. Tools. Knowledge. We have been bringing them together in harmony for more than 170 years. Dictum provides inspiring tools and materials for those who create lasting values with their own hands.

A nice feel and ergonomic shape, quality materials and good workmanship - there are many factors that combine to make first-class tools. Before we decide to recommend a product to our customers, it must meet a number of criteria: Our quality assurance standards are very high. Our unique tools - many of which we manufacture ourselves with great precision and attention to detail - stand our customers in excellent stead, day in, day out. High-quality steels, blades with outstanding edge life and our individual sharpening service ensure that you can enjoy our superior products for many a year.

„Made with precision from high-quality materials, each one of our hand-made tools is unique - a cut above.“

We practise traditional values and preserve ancient knowledge, but still we keep up with the times. Driven by a passion for crafts, our enthusiastic and accomplished team develops innovative products - often working closely with our customers - and redefines "craftsmanship" in keeping with modern times. Over many years we have created a portfolio of tools, materials and knives to meet the highest demands.

And they are waiting to be discovered by you - either in one of our shops or on our courses, where you can find out for yourself what it means to work with our products and assure yourself of their quality. We want your purchase to be a conscious decision. Our experts offer valuable tips and are happy to give you qualified advice for your individual needs.


DICTUM makes long-lasting products with absolute conviction. They are free of pollutants and harmful substances, and their origins are guaranteed and documented. We call this "fidelity of origin". Japanese saws, for example, are made exactly where the name implies. We attach great importance to honest dealings with our customers, business partners and staff. Because DICTUM is about more than just tools.


This is something you can experience for yourself on our courses. We happily support you in learning to use the tools, materials and craft techniques or develop your skills further. Get inspired with the many and varied learning opportunities in our workshops and be taught by masters of their crafts.
