“I am forging Svan knives by the method of “Batsarauli” as our ancestors used to do it.”
Georgi Pilpani makes knives, traditional Svan knives. He is proud about how this helps conserving the culture of his region. His small smithy is next to the yard where his kids play with neighbours. “People were studying how to forge and I hope these traditions will not get lost.”
Georgi is a smith from Lengeri.
