The "Roman" testifies to the widespread mentality in the Papal States for which the knife was considered as a faithful friend to be constantly worn "in his pocket" and to be unleashed at the first hint of a fight or for an immediate response.
Many elements constituting the "Roman" bear witness to the offensive use that distinguished this knife: the sharp blade, the decorations of the lattice handle or fish bone that served to improve the grip, the locking system with fixed spring that prevented the knife could close up accidentally and that at the time of the opening emitted a dry noise that exalted the aggressive expression.

The craftsmanship is beautiful because it is varied
The colors of the materials with which the handicrafts are made may vary from those shown in the images.
Horn, wood and cornotech are raw materials that by their nature have a marked variability from one supply to another: this is the beauty of quality materials. Add the craftsmanship, where the hand of the craftsman never performs the same gesture: it is the beauty of craftsmanship. Combine all this and you will have a product that is always different and unique. It is always different from that unique and unrepeatable product that we must necessarily photograph if we want to make you understand what we are talking about and what we are offering you.50040$139.02Out of stock
Traditional knife produced by master cutlers in Scarperia, place where, since 1300, the craftsmanship of Italian knives continues.
Typical Piedmont knife, in use since the early 19th century also in Liguria. Originally from the village of Vernante (Cuneo).
The 420 stainless steel blade can be scimitar or straight.
On the upper part of the heel there is always the characteristic appendix with the head of a nail which, by housing a socket in the handle, allows the blade to be held steady with the knifted thumb.
Used for all agricultural and domestic work and, for the particular sharpening, also for carving wood.
The cattlemen also used it as a surgical tool to carve the belly of cattle grazing, when too much wet grass was ingested causing excessive accumulation of gas.
