BASQUE-YATAGAN is known not only in the Basque Country, that is to say in the Spanish and French regions of the Pyrenees, but far beyond in Spain and Aquitaine. Its Yatagan blade is of oriental origin. The Crusaders brought them back. This knife has been used in the south of France and in Spain Its distinctive shape continues harmoniously in the curved knife handle, whose main feature is a pattern of large rosettes. For some cutlery, they are also designed flush with the surface of the handle, but originally they are embossed. BASQUE-Yatagan was a tool for shepherds who went to the wild mountain areas of the Pyrenees with their animals. With the presence of wolves and bears, they needed a sturdy, firm knife, a true Fidel companion. But it is also the knife of the peasants, especially the knife of tobacco growers in the Bergerac region, where tobacco has been cultivated for generations. When cutting tobacco plants at the time of harvest, a slippery gelatin juice escapes from their interfaces, making it extremely difficult to hold the knife firmly in the hand. The rosettes form a relief that prevents slipping or skidding. Over time, it has become a decorative element. We do not need rosettes anymore for our work, but we can keep the rosettes as an inseparable piece of jewelry from the knife. Traditionally, the handles of BASQUE-YATAGAN are horn, ram and other hardwoods and resistant. For anyone looking for a solid, solid pocket knife for hiking and outdoor use, it's a perfect companion for size, strength and versatility.
