Classic Faca Knife Julian Galván deer horn tall size

Classic Faca Knife Julian Galván deer horn tall size model collection, twenty two half centimeters in blade with a genuine Spanish deer horn handle with a hand-forged and polished outer spring and smooth with a forged pure steel bolsters with a flat shaft and a nailed handle. Blade made of forged steel Mova made by Julián Galván Hellín in Santa Cruz de Mudela, currently deceased since 1997.

This knife is hand made entirely beginning from zero, the horns are measured, which in this case are two parts, the size of the blade is calculated according to the handle, and then the deer horn is assembled, which is cooked and sanitized on steel linings that have previously been cut to the shape of the horn. Subsequently,

the blade of the previously forged knife is mounted and the shaft and spring of the knife are placed, which previously has been mounted with its billet or lock also made of solid steel, being the type of external tile spring. So,

This model of the Faca Ciervo knife was used to carry the belt, hence its name “Faca” and it was used for defense due to the proportions of its blade and the “ratchet” opening system or various spring jumps, The shape of the blade, very similar to a larger Albacete and with the same type of spring, was ideal to skew your opponent’s neck and finally be stuck in the belly, a very deadly weapon in expert hands.


The Julián Galvan´s history

The knifemaker Julián Galván Hellín, born in Santa Crus de Mudela in 1922, son of Julián Galván Arroyo, from whom he learned the trade, is considered posthumously the best knife craftsman of the 20th century.

He was the first prize for craftsmanship in cutlery at the provincial exhibition in 1974, today and due to the reluctance of his last years of life to sell collectible knives of his property made throughout his life, the knives that this knifemaker made are considered works of art and extremely valued for their scarcity


Due to being collectible pieces and being made entirely by hand with natural materials, there may be tolerances of the horns with which the handles are made that make each piece unique and singular
