This unusual folder combines a single edge cutting blade with a razor style blade folding onto the opposite ends of a simple flattened ram horn handle. It is from Sicily, the largest Italian island, located in the South of Italy facing the region of Calabria. This knife has been crafted to be carried for all working activities. It is part of the large family of "primitive" folding knives, made with two pins one which represents the axis of rotation of the blade; the other - sometimes thinner - serving as a stop for the blade heel when the knife is opened. The handle is carved from a single piece of ram horn without a supporting liner. The knife remains in good condition mainly considering age and type. The knife has been used and blades show signs of sharpening but still open and close properly. 12 cm when folded
