Originally, the Shepherd is a Corsican pocketknife. Created to work, it was used for hunting or carving small pieces of wood while the shepherd kept his flock. It was used in hunting to cut up game, because of its broad pointed blade directed towards the back. Its thick and short blade makes it an ideal tool for carving wood and cork. its curved handle is directly inspired by the horn of the ram to offer an ideal grip and great precision of the gesture. Always in the shepherd's pocket, he used it every day to eat wherever he was.
Attention: The sleeves are natural wood or horn, each piece is unique and the photos are not contractual.
