The Arbus knife or Arburesa is an utility knife switchblade, featuring a rounded blade and generally larger size of Pattadese.
Handle often curved in order to best accommodate the blade. Often, the handle is carved from a single piece of horn or done in fine Sardinian juniper. The nut and bolt are generally made of brass or steel.
The Arburesa belongs to the category of so-called monolithic knives. The handle, often in the ram’s horn or done in fine Sardinian juniper, is carved from a single block specially cut to accommodate the blade and usually embellished with sculptures which often represent the Sardinian fauna .
