Sardinian knives

The traditional Sardinian knife is the switchblade, represented by finely crafted handles made of mouflon horns, as our ancestors used in the past, and also of more modern materials such as burr juniper and other types of wood.

The blades are hardened through ancient processes, yet secretly preserved from generation to generation, forged between hammer and anvil with painstaking attention.

For Sardinians the "S'Arresoja" is a symbol, a true emblem that distinguishes valiant men from lesser valiant ones in farming-pastoral environments. Several places boast this type of product as their pride and joy, such as Pattada in Sassari, Arbus in Medio Campidano, Dorgali in Nuoro and products made in Oristano.

SA PATTADESA: The original knife from Pattada. It is considered the Sardinian knife par excellence. The classic shape is the SA RESORZA presenting the blade as foll'è murta, in other words with the characteristic shape of a myrtle leaf. This knife is usually a switchblade.

The handle has a simple line.

In the steel top above the handle a Lapwing is inscribed. This is a typical Sardinian depiction, widely used as a symbol of thanks, fertility and freedom.
