In the Hartlap District, which is 32 km away from the center of Kahramanmaraş Center, is the Demirciler Market and the center of knife production. The main materials used are steel, wood, horn, plastic and fiber. Every kind of knife for every purpose is manufactured in the Hartlap District. This is still a cottage industry where small workshops produce knives under the direction of larger production houses overseen by a master knife maker. In the past, 35 workshops were in active production, but today this has been reduced to about 15 makers.
