Fisherman’s knife typical of the central Adriatic coast. Its particular feature is the flat spring fixed to the outside, on the back of the handle, that makes it easy to clean. On the outer tip of the handle, there is a short but clear dorsal step, once used for mending fishing nets. The Anconetano is a model in horn tip.

Horn tip is used from the, most extreme part of the horn, the only part which is solid inside. This allows the entire handle to be made from a single piece of horn, in contrast with the normal procedure of assembling the knife with two sides or ‘cheeks’ of horn. Fewer knife makers continue to use the tip of the horn given the complexity needed to work with solid horn, which requires considerable time and expert craftsmanship. Thus solid horn is exclusively reserved for the creation of knives of high value and worth. The quality of workmanship and finish of these knives is remarkable and quite exquisite.

Regional knives are artisan knives that recall the most characteristic Italian production, often linked to diverse customs, such as fishing, hunting or farming, but with one thing in common – an intensive use of what was once an indispensable tool.

A soft-fabric draw string pouch is included.
