The Piedmontese is a historic folding knife with a length of 30 cm dating back to the 18th century.
Its main features are the deer and buffalo horn handle and the satin-finished blade made by using c70 steel.
The item has a robust and tapered structure typical of offensive knives. The Piedmontese is recognisable by a particular facet on the head of the handle; this feature probably took up the construction and landscape style of the Italian region.
Some Piedmontese knives have the particularity of having the handle made with two different materials, often tortoiseshell, ivory and buffalo. We find various types exhibited in the criminal museum of Rome.
