Franco Beretta Folding Field Knife
This is a beautiful and practical folder. Blade is marked as 440 stainless. It is, for those interested 440C (confirmed by Maserin). The olive wood scales are both beautifully grained, but also laser checkered. Under a 20x loupe, the checkering shows rounded over high spots, which give a great grip, without the snagging in your pocket which traditional sharp edged checkering would produce. Olive wood is a very hard and tough wood, 2690 on the Janka scale of hardness (which ranges from 350 to 4380). The scales (handles) thicken towards the base (away from the blade), which also contributes to the positive ergonomics. Cotellierie Maserin is a family owned and operated business since 1960, and have a great reputation. While this model (Maserin 125/1) is available, you won't find it with the Beretta markings or the checkering. Thanks to Herrington's for making this available. Buy one now.
