The traveller’s knife is a replica of a knife which was sold to the pilgrims along the way to Santiago de Compostelle early in the nineteenth century.
This original knife has been redesigned (forged spring, thickness of its blade, its shape), to become a reliable rustic knife.
The story of the pilgrinage to Santiago de Compostelle began in 820 with the discovery of the grave of St-James the Greater at Iria Flavia in Galicia.
King Alphonso II ordered to raise a little sanctuary over the grave in order to honour the saint.
