The origin of the technology dates back to the Stone Age, when our ancestors discovered the existence in nature of a series of stone (silex, quartz, obsidian ….) extremely hard which could mold and sharpen it, this discovery with experience developed to sharpen allowed them to make the first knives, axes and cutting tools which facilitated the work of hunting in order to ensure a daily food ration.
