This is the most ergonomic folding knife we have ever featured in the last 20 years. The long rounded handle paired with a blade that is much shorter than knives in that size range gives this knife amazing "working power." The "pistol" like grip feels very secure and will give you instantaneous confidence on this knife's ability to get any job done.
This knife was named after one of Corsica's most secluded white sand beaches. Rondinara is located a few kilometers from Bonifacio is southeast Corsica. This Corsican knife was created in collaboration with the Zuria family of Bonifacio Corsica.
