Saladini Pattada Italian folding knife - Ox horn handle
The Pattada is a traditional knife design from Sardinia, made in Scarperia the town north of Florence where Saladini produces their artisan wonders. This beautiful, folding knife is made using ox horn for the handle and measures just under 8.5 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.
