Mozzetta Pocket Knife with Cow Horn Handle


The Consigli family workshop in Scarperia, Tuscany handcrafts an impressive line of regional and historical knives.  The Mozzetta knife owes its name to its cropped point, which looks as though the blade has been cut off (the Italian verb mozzare means to cut off). Knives without points became popular in Italy after a law was passed in 1908 which imposed strict limits on carrying knifes with sharp tips and encouraged the production of various knife models with cut-off points.  The handle of this knife is crafted from cow horn from Tuscany. The blade is stainless steel. 

The Mozzetta is 4” long when closed; and 7.25” long when open.
