Description

The Rasolino family of knives is a traditional Sicilian style with a curved blade and a truncated tip that falls somewhere between a scimitar style and the mozzetta blade. The Rasolino Tagliasigari is a special design intended for the cigar smoker. The notch in the handle is not only a convenient grip for your fingers, it is actually intended to be used to trim the tip of a cigar. Open the knife, place the end of the cigar in the notch and close the knife. The handle is made with beautiful, Tuscan olive wood and the total length is about 7.5 inches.

Ox horn is a natural product and varies in color from knife to knife. Some horn can be very light and creamy in color with little variegation to darker caramel and coffee colors with lots of variegation.

Coltelleria Saladini

While dining in Verona at I 12 Apostoli, we fell in love with the tableware and had to track it down. It turned out to be hand made by the craftsmen of the Saladini family in Scarperia just north of Florence.

This cutlery is some of the most beautiful you will find anywhere and while we have a wide selection of their knives available online, we have access to their entire catalog of products. If there is a particular knife that you know of and you don't see it here, just send us an Email and we will let you know when we can get it for you.

Scarperia is an ancient medeival village built by the Florentine Republic in the 14th century. It is known as \"the town of knives\" and justifiably so as the art of manufacturing fine knives has been ongoing since the village was first settled. Their knives use the highest quality stainless steel and natural materials such as ox horn, water buffalo horn and Tuscan olive wood for their handles.

If cared for properly, these knives will give years of pleasure. For best results, please hand wash only and dry shortly after washing.
