"Maremmano" Knife with Leaf-shaped Blade

The handle of this regional Italian folding knife is made from a single piece of fine ox horn or olive wood; in the case of ox horn, this means using the entire tip, which is recessed to house the blade and the simple spring-loaded closure movement. The iconic feature is the blade, which is bulky yet streamlined; it is 3 mm thick and 10.5 cm long and its shape and recalls that of a leaf.

The typical knife of the Maremma lands

A poor man's knife from the Maremma area of Tuscany, crafted in Scarperia since the mid-1800s. The first reliable information on this model dates back to 1848. The most famous piece is dated 1871 and belonged to a convicted brigand called 'PESCECANE'. It is still kept in the State Archives in Florence, where it is attached to all the court documents.Many versions were produced in Scarperia, and the oldest of them were decorated with engravings called "righe" (lines) along the length of the handle.
