Product Information

An account of the Sardinian knife, which has always been an object of desire and has become a symbol of identity and belonging, today a triumph of form, aesthetics and functionality. The rich textual and iconographic documentation retraces the history of the Sardinian knife up to the present day: from flint and obsidian points to leppas and resorzas that have tested the technical skill of those who designed and made them, soliciting the taste of craftsmen today capable of creating extraordinary works in terms of formal and decorative beauty. The essays contained in the volume clarify certain historical and anthropological aspects to open up new and fascinating paths to be explored: they unveil the Iberian origins of the Sardinian switchblade, rediscover ancient blade models and advance hypotheses on the true origins of the pattadesa.
