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 knife is a faithful reproduction of the knife nicknamed " Gobbo della cooperativa ", a type of pocket knife with simple spring closure produced since the early 1800s. Mainly used by Abruzzo shepherds, it was widespread within the central-southern regions and represented a faithful work tool or even more simply a table knife used daily. What characterizes this object is the particular arched shape of the handle from which it takes its name. The full tip handle is made of ox horn   and thanks to the particular design it allows a firm and sturdy grip while the blade is produced in MA5M steel . Handcrafted in Italy , this type of knife brings to mind moments of history and culture of the past thanks to the attention to detail and the passion of expert cutler masters who make each piece following and respecting traditional techniques.
