Originating from Naples,this knife could be used for work purposes , although it is quite possible that it was used in duels or tavern brawls which were very common at the time. It is a real weapon with the sturdy frame of the handle, made from a single piece of chased cow horn and an external spring mechanism which locks the blade. It features a ring on the head of the back spring to easily unlock the blade once opened. The blade has a false edge and a decorative design file worked by the center. The spine has been nicely chased. The knife is 16,2 cm long when opened and 9 cm when folded. The blade remains in full profile and locks up tightly and firmly.
