Simple knife handle and simple spring. The ''scimitar'' or ''French'' blade, already in production by the early part of the 20th. century was in production until the mid 1950’s. The great success of this particular model, produced in Scarperia and famous all over Italy, is due to the fact that apart from being extremely light and elegant it is very robust and has a very keen cutting edge. It is characterized by the band at the top of the handle and the metal button at the heel of the handle.
