t is a light and elegant “navaja” with a sharp and narrow blade.
It is ideal for pruning due to the curved form of the blade.
Its blade is similar to that of a sword or sprat.
It is characterized by the symmetry of its blade and the straightness of the handle.
It is ancient and simple. It was used in grazing tasks.
DE FIELES (OF PINS OR RIVETS)
It is simple and very effective for cutting. It is the oldest type.
SEVILLANA (FROM SEVILLA)
It is very similar to the type “Albaceteña”, but the blade is sleeker.
JEREZANA (FROM JEREZ)
Typical folding knife used for defence and attack.
It has a wide and short blade, adequate to castrate, therefore it is also called “capaora” (castrator).
This type is a result of the legal restrictions imposed on the manufacture and use of pocket knives at the end of the nineteenth century. It is used in agricultural works for grafting, so it is also called “folding grafting knife”.
ALBACETEÑA (FROM ALBACETE)
It is the classic “navaja”, made in Albacete, which is used as a domestic and rural utensil.
It is more solid than the previous one because it has a spring with a ring that makes it unique and gives its name.
