At the recent Northern Shooting Show I was shown some knives from a brand I’d not heard of before. Ross Marshall, Dave Mills and Terry Farrugia have recently joined forces to import a number of products and Trento knives are amongst them. Made in Argentina, the range is vast and includes items for chefs, hunters and more ‘tactical’ users.
The example I have here is the Trento Hunter 140 folder. The 3mm thick blade is made from 420C steel, which has a high carbon content, so will cope well with a range of tasks and is 80mm long; the overall length when open is 190mm. A stud is fitted to the back of the blade and is used to open it; when deployed, the ‘liner lock’ locks the blade securely in position. To fold the knife, the liner lock is simply pushed to the side. The handle scales are made of Zebra Wood (Cynometra Malaccensis) and are well cut and finished, semicircular cutouts at the end of the scales form a useful lanyard hole. The rear of the handle sees a belt clip but as the 140 comes with a nylon belt pouch, the owner has a couple of carry options. The blade was very sharp straight from the presentation box and held a perfect edge after making a huge pile of feather sticks.
Priced at £15.95, the Trento 140 folder should make an excellent addition to any outdoor person’s toolkit. For further details, email one of the following: [email protected], [email protected], [email protected]
