Andrew Zimmern remembers the Sardinian hamlet for another reason its talented knife makers. "The Sardinians have the greatest pocket knives in the whole world," says Zimmern, host of the Travel Channel's 'Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern.' "They have a gorgeous shape [and] they use them to cut everything from cured meat to fishing nets."

I find it hard to disagree with this man on anything. Guns, food, hunting, knives. He treats everyone with the highest respect too.

Great program and he should be renamed "Mikey" 'cause he'll eat most anything.

Totally agree on the Sardinian knife. I've had this resolza for a couple of years now, and it not only cuts great, but feels sooo good in the hand. Like an Opinel, it's insanely light weight for it's size. Don't even know it's in the pocket until you need it. Handle is rams horn. Made by Senior Osai and sons , Pattada Sardina.

Sam,

"similar" is the right word. Equivalent...well that would be insulting. ;)

If you look up Sardinian or Pattada knives you'll find some extraordinary artisans there producing beautiful knives.

Cool something to put on my Fathers day list. Andrew is a great guy to watch on TV.

Awesome. I love the leaf blade shape. It is probably my favorite. It is so cool to see it on more traditional knives.
