The Consigli family workshop in Scarperia, Tuscany handcrafts an impressive line of regional knives. The Rasolino is a typical knife of Sicily. The name of this knife comes from the shape of the blade that is similar to that of a razor ("rasoio"). It became popular 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. This Rasolino also has a space in the handle where a cigar can be placed to cut the tip. The handle of this knife is crafted from the tip of a cow horn. The blade is stainless steel.
The Rasolino is 4 ¼” long when closed; and 7 7/8” long when open.
