Re: Info on Early Spanish Navajas folding knife ?
The Navajas were never designed for heavy or hard use such as chopping wood or field work. They were designed for close in " slashing " . In the Mediterranean area knife fighting was very common among the lower classes and the purpose was to cut your opponent rather than delivers a killing blow. If you killed your opponent it meant a official investigation which sometimes meant a bad time down at the police station and a jail term. A few knife cuts over a perceived insult was usually overlooked.
