Re: Italian knives

Hi Ian The firts one is an Italian duel knife from Rome or nearby areas, built in 1800-1900. It's an unusual form. I just saw one with the same shape some months ago on ebay. It's usually called "coltello alla romana" or "serratore alla romana". I will write about this model in o...

Re: Guerre de fils paris?

You are welcome! the market for these knives is a bit strange. I can talk about Italy and for what I know, about Europe. There are knives (especially big duel knives) that reach very high prices, for the others in these years there is less interest. A golden rule here in Italy is that price increase...

Re: Italian knives

Here we are with the first traditional Italian knife I choose for the beginning of this trip. I will try to post regularly one update every week.
