"Handmade" knife: Le Sperone in olive wood and Damascus blade
This very beautiful model with its olive handle and its Damascus steel blade, is part of the top-of-the-range Sperone collection! a folding knife imagined and designed in Corsica by the Zuria cutlers of Bonifacio in close collaboration with the Fontenille Pataud house in Thiers and Robert Beillonnet, M.O.F 1997 and 2000.
Like all Sperone, its opening is very soft and it has a blade locking system by rear pump and a fixed stop, so it does not hit the bottom of the knife when closing.
Noble materials, exclusively Damasteel® steel of very good quality and finishes down to the smallest detail are the main assets of this knife. Its spring is forged, chiseled and polished inside and Corsica is engraved on the fly which is also forged.
