Description: Amedeo Paolella has been a knifemaker for over 20 years. First drawn by a love of hunting to the world of hand-crafted knives, his creative temperament continually pushes him to realize hunting knives in a very artistic manner.
Forged from a super dense twist pattern stainless Damascus, Beccaccia is named for the Eurasian woodcock (Scolopax rusticola), a game bird considered a delicacy throughout Southern Europe. The simple wide leaf blade acts as the canvas on which Amedeo hones his craft. Exactingly fileworked, sculpted and hammer-finished from his small shop in Villa Latina, Italy, comes his unmistakable style characterized by a design with sharpened shapes, blazing tongues and pointed edges.
The finger-grooved heather briar and buffalo horn handle coupled with the assertive integral D-guard feels incredibly sturdy in the hand. Brass and steel rivets nicely accent the effect of the woodcock-shaped 440C stainless steel "guard". Spacers of vulcanized fiber cushion the materials from changes in temperature and add to the overall symmetry of design.
Woodcock are very difficult to find today, so this is something of a historical curiosity. However, chef Aldo Santini says that if your favorite restaurateur calls to tell you he's come across some and is making woodcock crostini, you should drop everything -- business, family or lover -- and run. "They're well worth an argument."
A fitting tribute to a fine fowl.
