The Rustic Steak Knife is a knife of unusual dimensions, 11,02″ of perfection and uniqueness.
The blade: large, pointed and smooth cut, is forged by hand. It has a shape that curves downwards to allow you to cut the meat up to the tip and is mounted on the handle thanks to a retractable circular tang and a knot with a circular design that connects perfectly with the shape of the handle.
The handle, larger and more powerful than all other table knives, is made of unpolished ox horn, made opaque for a greater affinity to the concept of rustic. It is a full, rivetless handle with the characteristic curved shape typical of Saladini table and kitchen knives.
Strongly linked to the Tuscan tradition, made of peasant art and farmhouses, large wooden tables and a beautiful Florentine steak.
Technical Specifications: Total length: 11,02″; Blade length: 5,11″.
Collection Materials: Olive Wood; Ox horn; Buffalo horn, Mixed Woods and Resin.
Scarperia is a medieval town that was built by the Florentine Republic on 8 September 1306, and may by all accounts be considered “the town of the knives”. From its earliest beginnings, this town has consistently shown its talent for the processing of cutting tools, and this ancient art form has made it famous throughout the world. The origins of this tradition date back to the fifteenth century, when the first Master Cutlers published their Charter for safeguarding and organising the process of manufacturing knifes and the related trade. The name is Lombard in origin, from scarp (deriving from the English word “sharp”) and refers to the centuries-old activities of fine cutlery.
The Saladini family has its roots as master cutlers in Scarperia as far back as 1841, as is testified by the historical archives of the parish church of Fagna. Leonardo Saladini was born in 1969, and in 1984 he embarked on his adventures as a cutler for his uncle Marcello Azzini’s company. Over time he would learn the methods and secrets of his art and in 1995 he felt experienced enough to start a business of his own. He opened his very own workshop, inspired by the dream of making his own exclusive and personalised line of knives. In 2002, Giacomo Cecchi joined the Saladini, having completed his studies in architectural design and obtained the certificates of “Master Cutler” and “Artistic Metal Working”. Giacomo’s teachers and mentors were Marcello Azzini and Renzo Berti, two true master cutlers who both possess a sophisticated ingenuity and precision, and who know how to convey their craft and transform it into a passion. This collaboration was born out of a friendship with Leonardo Saladini, and Giacomo’s creativity has seen him design and produce new models, including a line of knives of his own.
