Extrema Ratio Resolza Folding Knife 4.72" Black N690 Blade, Black Anodized Aluminum Handles - EX0137BLK
EX0137BLK: Resolza Folding Knife, Black
Resolza is an ancient name, reminiscent of the Italian word for razor. The centuries-old Sardinian "resolza" is one of the most well-known traditional knives in Italy. To this day it's been the constant companion to island farmers with their everyday work. It followed them even when they were called to war: Chronicles of the Sassari Brigade during World War I mention the knife as part of the troopers' equipment. Extrema Ratio's attempt to revisit this traditional design according to their own standards is meant as a tribute, not to disregard Sardinian craftsmen still practicing the old ways of knifemaking and keeping ancestral traditions alive. This Resolza retains original measurements and proportions, with a 4.72" blade, but is produced with the usual Extrema Ratio high-end materials and technologies. The handle was redesigned, while the blade more faithfully approaches a traditional shape. As an improvement on tradition, they added a blade-locking mechanism.
