Mac Coltellerie
We have long searched for a value priced line of folding knives and specialty tools that was still made in Europe. We are very pleased to introduce this line from Maniago, Italy that has the pricing of something you would find from Asia, but the style and flair of the old world!
Want a good quality folder that will last a while and don't want to spend a fortune? Do you prefer one that's not thrown together in China or Pakistan with variable quality? This nice Italian Made folding knife features a good quality stainless steel blade, strong Zytel handles and Italian craftsmanship. This is a slipjoint mechanism, meaning it doesn't lock open, but has a very strong spring allowing it to stay open or closed. Designed for two-hand opening using the nail nick. You can put through the ringer and not worry about but aren't junk. They will perform at a great price. Throw one in your glovebox, tackle box and every junk drawer in your house. They even look good with highly polished blades!

Here is the story of Mac Coltellerie:

The craftsmanship that had developed in Maniago in ancient times has grown and developed in to what it is today.

It was in these surroundings during the 1920's the business began, when Di Bon Giovanni, at that time 14 years old, started manufacture knives.

In 1936, Giovanni, along with other partners, created a small factory that worked for other knife manufacturers.

In 1958, his son Roberto also entered in partnership.

In 1964, the present Mac Coltellerie was founded and production was focused towards the classic, little knives for souvenirs.

With the help of Roberto's experience in sports, Mac made its first pass in creating other types of knives. Around 1978, the first hunting and diving knives were produced. At this point, the company started a process of expanding the production of diving knives and starting to produce nautical, fishing and rescue knives. With the growth in production, a bigger factory was needed and in 1984, Mac moved to the factory to where it is today.

In 2003, Roberto's son Matteo joined to take part in his business, bringing a major computerization to the business.

Thanks to a vast machinery yard and specific up-to-date equipment, Mac Coltellerie develops the whole production process in its factory.

Got more than I expected
As I have said in preious reviews, the city I live in doesn't allow locking folders so slipjionts are on of the few ways to go. I decided to go for a cheaper slipjoint so I wouldn't feel to bad if I lost it. It's 11 bucks so you can't go wrong. It's actually nice to see stainless steel not made in China. Now this knife is BIG ( as folders go) several people has told me that. The handle is alright, i mean it's plastic, but comfortable. Negative for being slick. Plus side is that it has a lanyard hole. The pressure that keeps the lock is strong and I mean strong, sometimes it's hard to open even when using the nail nick. I see this as a positive since when open the blade is solid. If it does close on you the blade has a bit of a choil and full 90 degree stop. The rotund handle prevents your hand from sliding up ( but cover about 1/2 the choil during 90 degree stop). All in all it's a good project slipjiont. Plan on putting on a thumb stud. Giving the blade some jumping and sanding down the handle to stop blocking that part of the choil and checker the handle. Then I'l have a good strong EDC.

This item met my needs for this type frame very well, however could be made a little more rugged and add a small serrated edge on the blade. A clip would be handy, too.
