Extrema Ratio ARDITI BLACK

Product Code: 04.1000.0220/BLK

A particular situation created in the early years of the first world war found soldiers in increasingly more complex confined situations. These situations demanded the formation of units who over time had to excel in hand to hand combat. Our assault units the “Arditi” had their own knife. They made these knives by cutting off the tips of their long bladed “Vetterli” bayonets of 1870 which in the past had been problematic due to its long and unwieldly length. 

Today on the occasion of its centenary, we remember this important piece of Italian military history with a deluxe celebratory version of only 100 pieces. 

This version comes with a satin blade, a wooden handle, a leather sheath and a very special wooden box. 

Should you like further history and background to this unique knife you may find more in the book "Storia dell'arma bianca italiana" by Cesare Calamandrei ISBN 978-88-253-0199-1
