The Pilgrim's Knife cm 19,5


The Pilgrim's Zuava Folding Knife handle is made from prime buffalo horn and is distinguished by the insertion of seven silver pins; the 440c stainless steel blade bears the mark of the pilgrim's shell and arrow, recalling the spiritual path-guiding symbols. A traditional, simple spring-loaded movement assists blade closure. The knife is provided with a jute bag and a rosary made composed of 10 black onyx grains.

The knife born to accompany man on his life journey

The Zuava del Pellegrino, past and present of an historic knife rich in folklore and tradition, owes its name to a legendary French military corps. An indispensable implement since ancient times and an inseparable close friend, it continues to exert its inexplicable, mysterious and fascinating attraction to this day. The Zuava del Pellegrino knife represents the symbolic and spiritual union of an instrument created to cut, serve, and accompany man on his life's journey. In this case, it also provides a cross before which the pilgrim can pay; it appears upside down when the knife is closed, but when it is open, as when stuck in wood or bread before eating, it presents the cross appropriately upright. The pilgrims who travelled on their spiritual journeys certainly had a knife in their pockets, and who knows if some carried such a knife. This image is dear to us, which is why today we have designed and made this jewel, entirely by hand in Scarperia, to be collected and, why not, for you to carry on your wonderful journeys. It is a unique object, full of meaning, a splendid team effort by Andrea Vierucci, Alessandro Conti and Fabio Gasparrini.
