handmade regional knife from Italy, made by the company SALADINI from Scarperia in the heart of Tuscany,

the balde is made from stainless UGINOX MA5MV (1.4116 HRC56-58) steel, the finish is mat, the scales are made from horn tip

The Zuava characteristically has a metal frame covered on the outside by ox horn plating and features two pieces of solid metal at the end, called studs, which give the knife its considerable robustness. This knife has a long history. In fact, its name comes from an old Napoleonic military corps, known as the Zouaves, who were probably equipped with a blade similar to this knife, which still today is known as a French blade. Its name takes the feminine form since it comes from the expression “alla zuava”. This sturdy, easy to handle knife was used for all kinds of purposes, from hunting and skinning animals to working in the fields or at home. It was a treasured possession of anyone who was lucky enough to own one and was even used for eating. With this versatile range of uses, it was the most well-known knife made in Scarperia and many people therefore considered it to be the knife of Scarperia.
