RESOLZA is an ancient name, reminiscent of the italian word for razor. The centuries old Sardinian “resolza” one of the best-know traditional knives in our country – to this day it’s been the constant companion to island farmers and shepherds in 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.
Our attempt to revisit this traditional design according to our own standards is meant as a tribute, not to disregard Sardinian craftsmen still practicing the old ways of knife-making and keeping ancestral traditions alive. This RESOLZA retains original measurements and proportions, with a 4.8″ 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, we added a blade-locking mechanism. RESOLZA 8 is the short version of the model RESOLZA. Available versions: RESOLZA 8 BLACK, RESOLZA 8 STONE WASHED.
