Knife


For the man of the plain the knife is a European legacy that was brought by the conquerors of the River Plate region. If we took into account the characteristics of the weapon, in the way that it is carried: into the boot, on the waist over the kidneys, so that the handle could be seen on the right, etc, we could call this legacy Andalusian gipsy. The knife was everything for the "gaucho" and with its generic name we include all kinds of knives that he used.
