With this exclusive edition of Coltelleria Collini in collaboration with Fox we have chosen to combine the pocket knife Baby Core by Vox with a Japanese powder steel (sintered) and rolled steel (SanMai) by Takefu Steel.
For this project we have chosen to use the Super Gold2 (SPG2) steel at 62/63HRC for the cutting edge of the blade in order to ensure exceptional cutting performance and durability of the sharpening, while ensuring a remarkable resilience and resistance to oxidation given by the lamination process of the blade.

Notes: Design by Jesper Voxnaes - Opening movement on ball bearings - Carson Flipper opening system - Exclusive version by Coltelleria Collini, Sprint Run, with Japanese Takefu Steel SPG2 Rolled Stainless Steel.
The rolled steel - imported in Italy by Collini Steel directly from the Japanese Takefu Steel - is based on the ancient Japanese tradition in the creation of the famous Samurai swords. As early as 1100, expert Japanese blacksmiths combined different materials to give Katana swords incredible cutting capabilities combined with previously unknown strength and flexibility. It is thanks to this revolutionary construction technique that the Samurai swords have been preserved until our days becoming one of the most fascinating objects made by man. Following this tradition applied to modern metallurgy, we are now able to have technologically advanced steels already tested and used in cutlery by famous brands such as Fallkniven, Cold Steel, Mcusta, Kai, Sog, Zwilling, Rockstead, etc.
- Longer cutting edge life
thanks to the use of high quality steels with high carbon content (VG10, CoS, Shiro) or sintered (SPG2), in the core steel, the blade, once hardened, reaches hardness and cutting performances definitely higher than those reached with the use of traditional steels.
- Greater resilience
Built on the principle of Japanese swords, the multilayer steel is difficult to break thanks to the toughness of the central steel (Core Steel) and the elasticity of the steel used for the lateral coating (Stainless Steel).
- Improved corrosion resistance
The steel used for the outer layers (Stainless Steel) gives the blade a high resistance to corrosion. The combination of the two or more materials used by Takefu Steel generates, at a galvanic level, a structure that improves corrosion resistance even on the edge.
- Easy machining even after heat treatment
Although steel normally becomes harder after hardening, the lateral steel used in multilayer machining does not lose its softness and allows easy machining, drilling or welding even after heat treatment. For optimum blade performance, cryogenic treatment is recommended.
- Improved aesthetic performance
Knives made of multi-state steel or damask pattern at the end of the processing are aesthetically elegant, refined and highly appreciated by collectors all over the world.
Company Profile In 1977 Oreste Frati after a long experience in the production sector and in the commercial, he founded FOX Knives. The company name, FOX (the initials of the owner), English fox, it is most suitable for this young company, in such a short time, has been distinguished by the innovative and far-sightedness of his ideas. Successful ideas that have been introduced in a choice of quality materials, in a use of advanced technology and the detailed care of every detail. Despite FOX is very grown up, all production is still directly controlled and programmed by Mr. Oreste, Valnea assisted by his wife, his son Gabriele and specialized collaborators. And it is this happy combination between a consolidated professional tradition and the desire for technical innovation, which has become FOX Knives, a first-rate in view of the domestic and international markets. The Fox brand has added the FKMD - Fox Knives Military Division, dedicated to military and tactical knives, appreciated and used by many military units throughout the world. FOX Knives: the foresight of innovations, with a base of solid professionalism.
