Francisco Bolognesi (1846-1880) was a Peruvian General of Italian descent that defended the city of Arica during the War of the Pacific with Peru and Bolivia allied against Chile. Peru was desperate to maintain the port near Arica to supply army. The situation worsened when Bolivia withdrew from the conflict leaving Bolognesi with merely 1,600 soldiers against the oncoming Chilean army of 8,000. When a Chilean messager demanded his surrender he replied, ”I have sacred duties, and I will fulfill them until the last cartridge has been fired.”

Out-numbered 3 to 1, Bolognesi and his men watered the ground with their blood in defense of their nation and never surrendered. Bologensi’s battle cry become an everyday expression and later the official motto of the Peruvian Military. This handmade Damascus knife, with Damascus bolster and solid rosewood handle reminds us of the strength and determination of Bolognesi. You don’t have to be a general to enjoy this full-tang work of art. A large handle fits nicely into your hand and gives you confidence when wielding this beautiful knife.

I’m honestly surprised and satisfied by the knife, came in perfect condition with a beautiful finish. It will be used extensively and passed down for generations. I’m truly satisfied with my purchase.

Bolognesi disappointing

After reading the reviews, I had high hopes for this knife to be my backcountry goto knife. But, I find the knife to be heavy and unbalanced. Also, the handle is smooth and a little small for my hand (needs grooves to stop the knife from slipping(. Lastly, the knife did not have a great edge.
Again, I really wanted to love this knife and as a professional chef the feel and safety of a knife is truly important.
I hope this helps.
Cheers

Bolognesi knife

The knife showed up much faster than I thought it would. as I opened the Box I noticed what a piece of craftsmanship. This knife showed up with a very sharp edge and ready to use

Amazing craftsmanship and super sharp

The lines are great. Straight and true. Damascus pattern looks nice as well. There is a very small bubble of material near the knife edge. Can’t quite make out what it’s from, but I don’t think it will effect functionality. Small dig in the tang on underside of handle. The rosewood handle is great too. Knife is very sharp but with a few rolls. All in all, will buy more from Forseti.

The knife blade is shorter and broader than expected, but it feels good in my hand. The knife handles well. The edge is razor sharp. Exceeds my expectations for craftmanship and value!

Why Forseti Steel?

Each Knife is Unique

All of our knives are made by hand and crafted one at a time. That is why no two knives are the same. The knife you receive will be similar to what you see on our site, but will be unique based on the natural materials used and individual craftsman that built the knife. 

Testimonials

Beautiful, true Damascus steel knives. They set the table with elegance and class.

Jon Groves

Love this knife! Compact design, nice grip, feels comfortable in your hand--very sharp blade! As a side for the ladies--it fits in the smallest of bags. You won't be disappointed if you buy it!
