The Veleno Black Aluminum, Black Top Shield dagger with a symmetrical sharp blade on both sides, is reminiscent of the knife that Fox made for the G.I.S. (Gruppo d'Intervento Speciale), the special operations / anti-terrorist group of the Italian Carabinieri. The Veleno derives from a reinterpretation of the ceremonial dagger, made more attractive by the materials used: a blade made of N690 steel with a Top Shield® finish and an aluminum handle finished in black, which resembles the distinctive color of this special forces unit.
