Cordobesa folding knife with a milano bolster and a plaited brass cord, made from a deer stag antler handle with a beautiful plaited brass cord and an Italian milano bolster made on nickel silver.
“Milano” bolsters have been made by italian cutlery artisans from centuaries, years ago, when I was young we used to mount this kind of folding knives and bolsters for several italian manufacturers who prefer to mount the knives on Spain and then giving the final details to each piece on Italy. As seem, this kind of bolster is straight with a square/rectangle shape and a small rung near the scale, you can find it on different materials but it’s typically made from brass or nickel silver.
Since it reminds me good old memories from a young age I wanted to give it a tribute in one of my top sold designs, I just added a floral pattern to give it some decoration.
This folding knife style comes from the city of Cordoba (Spain). This design is characterized by its blade design and a handle that uses to ends on a “heel”
Mirror polished half hollow grinded blade made on 440 steel with a length of 8,5 cm. (3,34″). The blade comes with a little “uñeta” or notch to ease the opening.
The blade’s thickness is 2,5 mms. (0,1″).
The deer stag antler handle comes with a plaited brass cord and a Milano nickel silver bolster bedecked with a floral motif. The length of the handle is 11 cm (4,33″)
The overall length is 19,5 cm (7,67″) while the blade is locked down. Once the blade is folded its length is 11 cm (4,33″).
