Fox Knives has been dialoguing with a dynamic and competitive market for more than four decades and has chosen to travel the road of research and development with a gritty and personality-rich approach: a design that is constantly evolving.
The roots of the area remain the "handcraft tradition" with which the company operates, studying the history of Maniago cutlery to update industrial production processes.
The VULPIS series was born from the need to create a compact, versatile multi-purpose knife with a modern style that creates a perfect marriage with historical products. The inspiration for the creation of this line starts from DUCA, the name of the multi-purpose for Maniago people, a knife born in the second half of the 1800s in Maniago when hunting sharpeners with different sized blades, ivory toothpicks and tweezers to remove thorns were produced. These knives were presented at the National Exposition in Turin in 1888 by the Bet Giovanni firm, which won a gold medal for the quality of its products, and so it was that, most likely, Luigi Amedeo of Savoia, Duke of the Abruzzi, wanted to go to one of the company's two stores in Turin where he saw and ordered the four-bladed multi-purpose knife that he chose as part of the equipment for the North Pole expedition he captained in 1899.

The VULPIS series is a line divided into two sizes: the smallest with a total length of 11 cm - 4.33" and the largest 13,5 cm - 5.31".
The small one features the one-blade model, while the larger one starts from the blade and goes up to the five uses: hacksaw, bottle opener, can opener, flathead screwdriver and scissors.
