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 collector's knife is a scale reproduction of "Lo Scarperia", a knife designed by Giacomo Cecchi and produced in a limited series, with only 10 copies made to mark the 700th anniversary of Scarperia and the tenth anniversary of Saladini. The Scarperiese represents the most characteristic Saladini knife in every aspect, since its design encapsulates the entire history of our ancient profession. The scissor-style handle is crafted from two milled sheets of metal, which come in either stainless steel or titanium. The knife is admired for its lightness but also for its robustness. The finishing on the inserts can be customized with any of the natural materials we use. It is undoubtedly a collector's knife, although it still features an impressive cutting ability thanks to its tempered steel blade, making the knife perfect for any purposes.
