The updated version of the professional rescue knife “URI XL” is now available with the hexagonal magnetic bit holder for standard 1/4" (6,35 mm.) insert. The blade is wider than that on the ARA XL model. This knife only comes in the plain-bladed version (with 4 sawedged teeth to give a better initial grip when cutting through ropes). The blade has a straight edge that is particularly suited to the cutting of sheeting and other materials sometimes called for in emergencies. The handle houses a new high-visibility non-slip insert, a stainless steel belt cutter and has a bihexagonal hole that acts as a size 13 wrench. The knife comes complete with instructions for use, cleaning and maintenance.
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.
