Extrema Ratio Introduces The RESOLZA A Touch Of Sardinia Tipo Extrema

You don’t need to read too many of my knife reviews to come away with the impression that I like edged weapons. Regardless of origin, they are the complete utility tool. Whether called upon for defense or just plain work, most blades of competent design will perform what you ask of them. At the top of a short list of my personal favorites is a company located in Prato Italy doing business under the name of Extrema Ratio. They have been producing quality knives for quite some time.

Its new RESOLZA folder, shown above,  is the “coup de grâce” in the art of bringing a classic design into the 21st Century. Classic design, modern day materials and fabrication is Extrema’s forte!

The RESOLZA’s name has its origins in the Latin “rasoria” pronounced with a hard “ra” which means razor. The Resolza or resòrza in Sardinian parlance was the de facto utility folding knife serving as both a defensive weapon and tool for herders and farmers. The traditional resòrza  had a long flowing belly which made it ideal for slicing and a pugnale character to its point. Extrema Ratio has captured that gorgeous look in its RESOLZA.
