Born of the Corsican agri-pastoral tradition, the shepherd’s knife is designed to be used daily. Its carbon or Damascus steel blade is easy to sharpen, and gives great character to this traditional-looking knife.

Its curved shape comes from the curve of the tip of the horn from which the handle is cut. The blade's particular shape derives from the use Corsican shepherds made of this tool: carving cooked meat, woodcarving and debarking wicker.

The patented locking mechanism is simple: an axis and a buttress - which allows the blade to be kept open. It is not a notch strictly speaking, but it makes the knife more secure.
