Stay sharp with this foldable, portable knife by your side. Keep it with you as part of your Every Day Carry (EDC) to open small boxes, envelopes or packaging. The clip-point (so named for the appearance of the top portion of the blade being “clipped off”) comes in handy. To create these knives, raw stainless steel is cut with a laser machine in Maniago, Italy, a city renowned for steel blade production since the medieval period. A grinding machine abrades the steel into sharp blades. Several artisans are involved in the making and assembly of the knife. The blade has an American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) grade of 420, meaning it is a hard, cutlery-level steel with a good resistance to the atmosphere, foods, fresh water and mild acids.
Pull out the blade when you are ready to use your knife. Fold blade back into handle when not in use. Clean by applying an industrial lubricant or oil and scrubbing crevices with a toothbrush. Do not use the cutting blade as a can opener, chisel, pry bar, screwdriver or for any heavy work for which your knife was not designed. Also, don't use the back of your knife as a hammer. It may break the springs, handles or pin. Remember to keep your knife sharpened: a dull blade can be more dangerous than a properly maintained one.
Manufactured in Maniago, Italy, this folding knife comes from a history of steel blade production reaching back to the medieval 1500s. Due to their proximity to Venice, the old blacksmiths of Maniago were permitted to use the streams to cool and cut their steel during tool production. The family business that designed and created this folding knife launched in 1960. Its patriarch, Fervido Maserin, began working in a factory that produced knives, scissors and other tools for agriculture at the age of 14, in the 1930s. Taking his many years of experience, he began his own line of products, which now includes knives for military, outdoor, hunting and personal use.
