The Fiorentino is perhaps the most refined knife from our late nineteenth-century production in Scarperia. Today, as it was back then, the knife is appreciated as much for its aesthetic value as it is for its cutting ability. The blade, known as a French blade, is made from a single panel with a slightly concave, rounded cutting edge, while the spine gives the knife its scimitar shape. The handle is typically made from hot-forged ox horn. It comes complete with metal hose clamps (usually in brass) and the butt is reinforced with a metal dowel pin riveted by two metal discs, known as ferrules. The knife is fitted with a simple spring mechanism and has perfectly balanced proportions. Nowadays, it’s decorated with a silver finish.
