Historic Passatore Knife

Epic Passatore folding knife made with fine buffalo horn, traditional locking system and brushed c70 steel blade.


The legendary knife of the Ravenna brigand

The Passatore knife is 44 cm long open and classified as a fighting knife. It is a historic knife of the nineteenth century that belonged to a real character, the Ravenna brigand Stefano Pelloni, known as the "Passator Cortese" (1824-1851) who chose the Tuscan-Romagna Apennines as his hiding place. He became a legendary outlaw, so notorious that for many he came to represent the rebellious soul that stirred the spirit of the Risorgimento, which had risen against the severe and oppressive regime of the time. A popular legend also claimed that he gave poor families part of what he stole from rich travellers in exchange for their protection. Eventually, a bounty was placed on his head; he was betrayed and died at a young age. The Passatore legend is rekindled in our production with the knife dedicated to him and which is inspired by the original model.

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.
