The Sperone knife
This folding knife owes its name to "Sperone" to the rocky spur located at the extreme South of the limestone cliffs of Bonifacio. It protected, 2000 years ago, the Roman port of Piantarella. It is still today an alignment marker for the Bonifacian sailors sailing around the Lavezzi Islands, in order to avoid pitfalls. The geological originality of the Sperone is highlighted in the landscape of the golf course of the same name. Source of inspiration for our Corsican cutlers, the Zuria brothers of Bonifacio, who imagined and designed this knife in Corsica in close collaboration with Fontenille Pataud de Thiers and Robert Beillonnet, MOF in 1997 and 2000. This "handmade" knife will delight you with the quality of its materials and its level of finish. Its mechanism is composed of a single piece with a safety detent located, in an original way, at the end of the handle, like a spur. This knife is 12 cm long, closed. The handle can be made of natural wood (olive, oak, juniper, heather root, etc.), horn (cow, ram) or bone. Its blade is usually made of stainless steel 14C28N or RWL34. Some more prestigious models have a «Damascus» blade.
