Since The Middles Ages, the Tuscan town of Scarperia has been a famed center of knives and cutlery production. Coltelleria Saladini in Scarperia is one of only four workshops left still producing knives. Based on historical patterns and materials, the Saladini collection is immediately distinguished by a stylistic renewal of forms with a particular attention to detail and the whole production process.
This model is an ancient Sardinian knife which was used before the more popular Pattada knife was around. Some models used to have a large blade in the shape of a bay leaf and were among the most common knives in Sardinia during the 19th century. Our version has the traditional shape with a rounded blade and a high-arched handle, featuring a butt in the shape of a goat’s hoof. The knife is crafted replacing the classic hose clamp around the bolster and also featuring a simple spring mechanism.
