This handsome, Italian-sourced single-blade Folding Pocket Knife has a classic retro look, with a gently arching back, faux pearl scales and brass liners. But what really caught our eye is the unusual blunt-nose, hollow-ground blade. Resembling a barber's straight razor, this blade has a unique profile and is known (not surprisingly) as a razor-style blade. It's rarely seen nowadays in a handsome pocket knife like this, a little gem equally at home in a gentleman's vest pocket or a lady's fine purse. It's our favorite knife for sharpening traditional pencils because of its razor edge and perfect control.
Slip joint, faux mother of pearl scales, 3-1/2" length folded, 2" blade, 440 stainless steel.
The Faux Pearl Razor Knife is one of three Italian-sourced pocket knives we have added to our selection, along with the Italian Boatman's Knife
and Camphor Burl Knife
. Each has something unique, and all are handsome and reasonably priced.
