About RGM


RGM takes its name from its founder Rosa Gastaldo Mario, who began production of fine palette knives in 1961. The RGM range of traditionally crafted knives now consists of over 200 models. Their palette knives are exported all over the world and have become the benchmark of quality. Still made in Maniago, Italy the range now also includes sculpture, gilding and print making tools.

The History

Rosa Gastaldo Mario

The RGM company takes its name from its founder Rosa Gastaldo Mario, who, towards the end of the 1950s, realised that the fine arts market was looking for technical and high quality products.


So in 1961 he decided to fill this gap and founded his company in Maniago, a city of cutlery and full of skilled craftsmen in steel processing. 

RGM is Established

Here the company could easily find expert collaborators who, together with the collaboration of local artists, RGM became a well known producer of tools in the fine arts market. 

RGM Expands

Over the years the company has developed considerably, passing to his son Edoardo who, grew up in the family business, and wanted to challenge international scenarios, which lead to RGM expanding internationally.
