Campidanese knife

The artefact

This core-reinforced straight blade jack knife is typical of a Sardinian tradition called campidanese. It is the result of a study on Medio Campidano knives, similar to the pattadese models used by shepherds. This hand-made artefact features a stainless steel blade and a mutton horn handle with a hand-chamfered nickel silver metal ring.
