Handmade wooden gift boxes

Discover our handmade gift boxes if you’d like to present your gift in a unique and appreciated way. We have all kinds of different combinations available for all sorts of Rosellis. We have gift boxes for both axes, knives and our kitchen knives. If you have a special request we can also custom-make a gift box of your own choice. Contact us!


Our gift boxes are made of tarred wood, which does not only give the gift box the rustique feeling you’re looking for, but also the distinct scent of an outdoor fire in the forest. The scent of a handmade Roselli that is crafted for a lifetime of adventure.

Why do people include a coin when gifting a knife?

According to superstition, a knife presented as a gift will sever the friendship between the giver and the recipient. The way around this is to attach a penny (or a coin of symbolic value) with the knife. The coin must be removed and returned to the giver as a form of symbolic payment.


Still not sure what knife to gift?

If you’re still not sure what knife to give away, you can always give them the gift of choice with a Roselli gift card. No need to worry, we promise that it is equally appreciated for a person to handpick their one knife for life on their own. Our gift cards are delivered by email and contain instructions to redeem them at checkout. Our gift cards have no additional processing fees.


You can also contact us directly if you’d like our opinion and guidance on what Roselli we think you should purchase for each person and occasion. Almost like a personal shopper. We know our products better than anyone else and can assure you the perfect fit for that special occasion or someone.
