The Pialincu (Peasant in southern Corsican dialect) - was created with Antoine Zuria and Robert Beillonnet (Awarded best custom French knife maker in 1997 & 2000).
Smooth opening & closing of the blade is provided by a Teflon assisted lock back system. This 10.5 cm handle pocket knife features solid hardened blade stop to protect the edge of the blade. Unlike cheap mass-market products that have springs that are machine decorated the spring top of this knife is hand-chased with a file. The "bee" on this knife represents the outline of the island of Corsica. These details combine with incredible quality and attention to details makes each knife one of a kind.
