With this exclusive edition of Coltelleria Collini in collaboration with Fox, it was decided to combine a multi-award-winning model like the Suru with a Japanese powder steel (sintered) and laminate (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 durability of the sharpening, while simultaneously guaranteeing a remarkable resilience and resistance to oxidation. given by the lamination process of the blade.

Notes: Opening via Carson Flipper system - Movement on ball bearings - Design by Jesper Voxnaes - Aluminum version of the SURU Carbon Fiber model, winner of the 2018 Blade Show as "Overall Knife of the Year" - Exclusive version of Collini Cutlery, Sprint Run, with Takefu Steel SPG2 Laminate Japanese stainless steel.
Rolled steel - imported into Italy from Collini Steel directly from the Japanese Takefu Steel - is based on the ancient Japanese tradition in the creation of the famous Samurai swords. Already in 1100 the expert Japanese blacksmiths in fact combined different materials 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 the Samurai swords have been preserved to the present day 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 also by famous brands such as Fallkniven, Cold Steel, Mcusta, Kai, Sog, Zwilling, Rockstead, etc.
- Longer tool life
thanks to the use of high quality steel with high carbon content (VG10, CoS, Shiro) or sintered (SPG2), in the heart of the sheet (Core Steel), the blade once hardened, achieves hardness and cutting performance decidedly higher than those achieved with the use of traditional steels.
- Greater resilience
built with the principle of Japanese swords, 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).
- Better corrosion resistance
the steel used for the outer layers (Stainless Steel) guarantees the blade a high resistance to corrosion. The combination of the two or more materials used by Takefu Steel generates, at the galvanic level, a structure that improves the corrosion resistance even on the wire.
- Easy processing even after heat treatment
although normally the steel becomes harder after hardening, the lateral steel used in multi-layer processing does not lose its softness and allows easy processing, drilling or welding even after heat treatment. For optimal performance of the blade, cryogenic treatment is recommended.
- Improvement of the aesthetic rendering
The knives made with multistate steel or with 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.
