Good day guys!

I hope this post finds you all well and everything is good,

I just wanted to my mini vendetta Corso folding knife with a natural deer stag antler handle and a really beautiful nickel silver Italian Milano bolster. The final touch is given by a plaited brass cord between bolster and handle.

“Milano” bolsters have been made by italian cutlery artisans from centuaries, years ago, when I was young we used to mount this kind of folding knives and bolsters for several italian manufacturers who prefer to mount the knives on Spain and then giving the final details to each piece on Italy. As seem, this kind of bolster is straight with a square/rectangle shape and a small rung near the scale, you can find it on different materials but it’s typically made from brass or nickel silver.

Since it reminds me good old memories from a young age I wanted to give it a tribute in one of my top sold designs, I just added a floral pattern to give it some decoration.

This folding knife style comes from France. This design is a tribute to the French cutlery products and knives.

For those who are curious, there they go the specifications:

Mirror polished flat grinded blade made on 440 steel with a length of 7,2 cm. (2.83″). The blade comes with a little “uñeta” or notch to ease the opening.

The blade’s thickness is 2,5 mms. (0,1″).

Nickel silver-studded natural deer stag handle with a length of 8.8 cm (3.46″). It all comes with a beautiful studded pattern and a plaited brass cord. Moreover, the nickel silver Milano bolster is bedecked with a floral pattern.

The overall length is 16 cm (6,29″) while the blade is locked down. Once the blade is folded its length is 8,8 cm (3.46″).

“Palanquilla rodea” with “teja” spring made on inox steel and bedecked with filed notches.

The artisan signature can be found in the back of the palanquilla.

Also, I have really good news, I have just signed a contract with my courier! Lately I have been demanding to get a discount on my international tariffs, since it was quite expensive (almost 30€ to ship a parcel to the US), but right now we get a discount of almost the 50%! right now shipping to the US would be only 18€!

I hope you like it guys,

Have an awesome week,

Best regards,

Beautiful knife, José, a work of art!
That's good news about the shipping discount. :)
 
Pinemoon Pinemoon - you are welcome - my immense pleasure too BUT I found him here on BF from a post he did in September. HERE IS THE LINK From there I saw a version of my knife and after starting a conversation with José by email, I was compelled to order one. IMHO, he offers one of the best values in well built and beautiful custom folders.

We are all the better for getting a chance to see his work and even buy some of his knives. :thumbsup:

Ray

PS (I'm not shilling for him - just impressed and excited to share the fortune.:))

(Anyone ordering a knife from Jose' will discover this quickly)
Your English is adequate and I am thankful that it was no barrier whatsoever when I discussed my order with you.
Thanks for doing what you do :thumbsup::thumbsup:

José are you blushing? :) We are not being generous - simply honest. If I could visit Spain again anytime soon I would be happy and honored to host you as my most welcome dinner companion. Alas - not in my near future. Come to Maine and you can hangout with both me and Pinemoon Pinemoon .

In the meanwhile we dream of your knives. This one has me in the clouds. My turn to say WOW. Muy elegante :thumbsup:
