With this exclusive edition of Coltelleria Collini in collaboration with Fox, it was decided to combine an innovative and award-winning model such as the Radius by Denis Simonutti, a Japanese steel from powders (sintered) and laminated (SanMai) by Takefu Steel.
For this project we have chosen to use Super Gold2 (SPG2) steel at 62 / 63HRC for the cutting edge of the blade in order to guarantee exceptional cutting performance and duration of sharpening, while ensuring at the same time a remarkable resilience and resistance to oxidation. given by the blade lamination process.

The rolled steel - imported into 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. In fact, as early as 1100 the expert Japanese blacksmiths combined different materials together to give the Katana swords incredible cutting capabilities combined with a resistance and flexibility previously unknown. It is thanks to this revolutionary construction technique that Samurai swords have been preserved to this day, becoming one of the most fascinating objects made by man. Following this tradition applied to modern metallurgy, today we are able to have technologically advanced steels already tested and used in cutlery also by famous brands such as Fallkniven, Cold Steel, Mcusta, Kai, Sog, Zwilling, Rockstead, etc.
- Longer tool life
thanks to the use of very high quality steels with high carbon content (VG10, CoS, Shiro) or sintered (SPG2), in the heart of the sheet (Core Steel), the blade, once hardened, achieves decidedly hardness and cutting performance higher than those achieved with the use of traditional steels.
- Greater resilience
built with the Japanese sword principle, 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 side facing (Stainless Steel).
- Better corrosion resistance
the steel used for the external layers (Stainless Steel) guarantees the blade a high resistance to corrosion. The combination of the two or more materials used by Takefu Steel generates, on a galvanic level, a structure that improves corrosion resistance even on the wire.
- Easy processing even after heat treatment
although steel normally becomes harder after quenching, the lateral steel used in multilayer processing does not lose its softness and allows easy processing, drilling or welding even after heat treatment. For an optimal performance of the blade, cryogenic treatment is recommended.
- Improvement of the aesthetic result
The knives made with multi-state steel or damascus 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.
