Handmade Zuava knife with simple spring steel blade Made in Italy.

This line of regional knives are part of the ancient tradition and are handcrafted by master cutlers who are experts in the sector who respect traditional techniques, thus managing to bring back to life the uses and customs of a place. These types of knives are typical of different capitals and areas of the Italian peninsula and, thanks to the love for tradition, they bring back to life the culture and habits of the past, thus managing to tell a piece of history.

This faithful reproduction represents the " Zuava " knife,   a type of ancient regional knife that takes its name from a French military body that probably used blades of the same kind still today called "French style". The use that was made of it could vary from hunting to work in the fields up to the simple use as a table knife and precisely because of the vast use it is one of the most popular knives among those of Scarperia. This object has an internal frame made of metal which is then coated externally with horn or wood plates, thus making it a sturdy , solid and functional instrument.
The blade, on the other hand, is in MA5M steel and includes a simple spring closing and opening system made easier by the "beak" on the bottom of the handle which allowed it to be opened with one hand.
Handcrafted in Italy with quality materials, the final product allows you to tell a story by bringing to mind the uses and customs of the past and at the same time handing down the culture of the past thanks to the attention to detail and the passion of the master cutlers.
