Consigli Large 8-2/3-Inch Blade Buffalo Horn Handle Kitchen Knife
For generations, the Consigli family has been leveraging its passion and expertise to produce high-quality traditional Tuscan pocketknives and cutlery, using the same forging techniques that the master knifemakers of Scarperia have been refining since the 14th century. The town of Scarperia was founded on September 8, 1306. Back in those days, the town was sited on what was then the most important road for anyone wishing to cross Italy.

Luigi - at the time, just a little over 20 years of age - and Enrico, his slightly younger brother, had already spent several years producing knives on behalf of the same company for which their father had been forging metal and making pattada knives and grafting knives since the very early part of the century. Currently, alongside its typically Italian models, which represent the perfect synthesis of tradition, technique, elegance, and refinement, the company also produces high-quality ...
