Model built with the traditional prerogatives of the nautical knife (shape of the blade and marlin spike) but also appreciated by rescue professionals such as Fire Brigades, Red Cross and Civil Defence corps.
A double liner-lock made of stainless steel (Aisi 420) provides a secure locking, in open position, of the blade as well of the marlin-spike.
The blade is presented in straight edge (typical of the boating), "combo" version (partially serrated and partially plian) and satined finishing.
A handy bottle opener made of stainless steel (to be used when the marlin-spike is in open position), a hexagonal magnet bit holder for standard ¼" (6,35 mm) insert and a spacer in the handle with hole for a string, make this knife a product of particular value.
Founded in 1925, A. E. Coltellerie snc has been creating great knives under the "Antonini" brand for more than three generations. The heritage of their location in the Maniago area near Pordenone, in northeast Italy, an area with a history of making knives, blades, and other cutting tools since Medieval times provides centuries of experience and skill. Their present range of products are "working" tools, which consists mostly of folding pocket knives for agriculture, boating/fishing, and electrical/telephone/cable industrial workers and home hobbyists. Also in their range are traditional pocket knives of Italy. They are also the original designers and producers of the "bullet" and "cartridge" knives, combining novelty with quality and usefulness. Their most recent expansion has been in a range of knives specifically designed for use in emergency and rescue operations, which have been very warmly received by Police, Fire, and rescue crews worldwide. You can be assured that the legendary "Antonini" label is one of quality associated with a family-owned company that still makes tools at their factory in Maniago, Italy. A. E. Coltellerie snc combines centuries of tradition and experience in metallurgy and knife-making with cutting edge technology and design, and they guarantee the quality of the materials and workmanship that goes into every knife they make.
