Saying a knife is “fun” is a fairly strange and somewhat frightening description. That being said, these knives are fun. Crafted by the Consigli family in Italy, these Happy Blade Knives open, not by a having a finger groove, but by sporting a tiny animal on the flat side of the blade. Available with an owl, dog, cat, dolphin, or frog, the knives were created with the idea of removing a bit of the aggressiveness associated with knives in general. Each is passionately crafted in a similar vein to the way most high-quality knives have been in Scarperia for centuries. Each 2-1/3″ knife is available with either a horn or boxwood handle and will no doubt be the most interesting pocket knife around.
