The historic knife with Arab origins

Bisaquino is a small Sicilian town in the province of Palermo whose name has evolved from the Arab term "Abu-seckin" which means "father of the knife". The tradition of making knives has disappeared in this village, but in the past it was full of workshops where horns and blades were creafted. Here the iconic folding knife is the "bisaquino" or "cu scaluni", which in dialect means the marks that appear on the horns of goats or rams every year, making it possible to estimate their age quite reliably. Simple and unpretentious, this knife was mainly used by shepherds, farmers and hunters.

From the encounter between the raw material and the skilful hand of the man, high quality masterpieces are born, synonymous with creativity and elegance. The raw materials are carefully selected and modeled in a workmanlike way, the removal of the material, the forging of the blade and the cutting of the horn are still carried out according to traditional methods, guaranteeing the quality of manufacturing. Small imperfections and shapes that are never exactly the same as those shown in the photographs, testify to the artisan essence of the products, born to be beautiful to look at and to last over time, perfectly embodying the ideal of luxury of the unique handmade piece.
