Goccia Carbon Fiber, Satin Finish when Danish knifemaker and knife designer Jens Anso showed his custom model Neo, it became the dream of the "perfect knife" for many knife lovers. In cooperation with Maniago Knife Makers, a top-quality production version of this model called Goccia was created. Goccia means "drop" in Italian and is meant to symbolize the first water-powered hammers in the forges that started the knife industry in Italy. The name is also reflected in the carefully milled concentric ellipses on the handle which are mesmerizing with their changing surface textures. This version of the knife features a satin-finished drop point blade made of Bohler M390 steel, a carbon fiber handle, a decorative blue collar around the pivot and a gray titanium backspacer.
Blade - made of the highest quality stainless steel Bohler M390 drop point blade is set on a ball bearing that provides a fast and smooth opening much better than solutions based on pads. Flipper with which we open the knife has been slimmed so that it does not stick out so much above the line of the handle. When opened it creates a mini-guard preventing slipping of the hand on the blade. 4mm thick blade provides high strength while high, flat grind provides excellent cutting properties. The long "belly" of the blade practically extends the length of the cutting edge in relation to the length of the head converging towards the needle-sharp tip of the knife.
The Bohler M390 is a popular choice for high-end utility knives due to its exceptional cutting-edge resistance. M390 has good corrosion resistance, so it requires minimal maintenance. Another advantage of this steel is its resistance to "wire" formation during sharpening. Comparable steels are CTS-204P and Duratech 20CV.
Handle - two plates of black Carbon Fiber, perfectly milled on 3D numerical machines into elliptical circles. Here reveals the mastery of Jens Anso's design, the handle is perfectly ergonomic, and the elliptical circles, in addition to their aesthetic function, also play a practical role by increasing grip security. A deep cutout in the lower part creates, together with the flipper, a protection against slipping of the hand on the blade during work. On the inside, in milled out liners there is a steel skeleton of the knife with Liner Lock. In the back we have a massive titanium backspacer with Jens' characteristic Lanyard Hole, a hole for a safety or decorative cord. The titanium, single-position (right) deep carry clip allows you to carry the knife in tip-up position. Thanks to the high attachment of the clip, the knife practically does not stick out of the pocket.
