This centuries-old knife recalls the Zouaves, a French light infantry force originating in the 1830's. These elite soldiers, also famous in Italy, probably carried a similar knife. The Zuava is the quintessential Scarperia knife, hand manufactured since the late 1800's and fashioned today to the same exacting standards. The materials, form, and reliability are unchanged, making this a beautiful, infinitely versatile knife. A bespoke pocket knife, definitely not a weapon. 

An all-purpose knife for country and town, equally adapted to the garden, campsite, or dining table...an indispensable companion to have always at hand. The Zuava is an object of mysterious fascination and humble utility, a piece to treasure and to pass down the generations, like a fine timepiece.
