Material Spring : special steel c67s, Spring steels feature a tensile strength and fatigue strength favorable for the application, a high elongation at fracture and area reduction at fracture and are particularly elastic. They can be bent up to the elastic limit and return to their original position after the load is removed without being permanently deformed. The high elastic limit is achieved by a special alloy containing silicon, manganese, chrome, vanadium, molybdenum and nickel. The tensile strength is obtained by the final heat treatment

Lelle Floris is a Sardinian craftsman born in Ghilarza. He belongs to the third generation of a family of knife makers and gunsmiths who are very well known in Sardinia. He began to build knives of various types from an early age with preference for stilettos, switchblades and ancient historical types, both Italian and Spanish from different periods of the last two centuries. The creation of these knives in particular is the result of a careful study of the originals and their size, materials, weight as well as their construction techniques. All processes faithfully reflect what was done by the skilled craftsmen of that time. He obviously chooses carbon steel for the blade in order to have the distinctive patina of antiquity that it forms over the years. For the handles only natural materials are used, such as bone, horns, ivory and wood. The use of machines is limited exclusively to a bench drill and to very few others, the rest is done entirely by hand with simple tools. Each creation is therefore unique and unrepeatable. His knives are appreciated by collectors around the world, especially from the United States, Russia, Germany and Austria
