    I'm not sure whether the Lajolo knife system is strictly traditional, a modern adaptation of a traditional style, or something else, but these are good examples of the use of distracting flourishes, sleight of hand and invitations in Italian knife fencing.

    Also interesting in the first video is the use of a cord or belt in conjunction with a knife. I *think* this is what Maestro Merendoni referred to as "la strarria", associated with Southern Italian coastal towns. Incorporating belts, hats etc. into fighting seems to be common to a lot of European MA dating from the late 1800s onwards.
    Is he using a straight razor on the second vid?

    Yes it easy. The grip he uses where he holds the blade instead of the handle is because straight razors don't have a locking system for the blade. So the blade is barely seen the blade at all.
