Handcrafted Corsican knife: La Cursina in Juniper and Damascus with Liner Lock
Formerly a Corsican shepherd's or peasant's knife, the Cursina was considered more of a tool than a pocket knife.
Its peculiarity lies in the shape of its blade with a very rounded back, varying from one region or from one blacksmith to another and comprising a tarabiscot (tool for making moldings in wood).
The handles were fashioned from materials found on site (wood, bone, horn). This rustic knife, a forgotten time, is now sought after by hunters who use it to skin and cut wild boar. The most beautiful models have a Damascus steel blade.
The Cursina, inspired by old knives, is part of the collection of artisanal knives of the brothers Zuria, Antoine and Camille, Craftsmen Cutlers in Bonifacio.
