Produced and imported from Italy this is the classic needle used to thread the iconic Culatello weave, but can also be used to sew casing ends, weave patterns with twine in products stuffed into a bladder etc… It is made of stainless steel, and measure about 8in. long.
Each needle is hand-made, and very unique. Every needle has natural variation, but is functionally made the same.
This is a fragile product!
Do NOT insert the needle too hard or you risk breaking the bone. Given the nature of this product it is non-refundable, and if you break the needle by getting it stuck on dried skin from inserting the needle to far...
It is advised by the Consorzio NOT to wash the needle heavily, but to quickly sanitize as they can soak up aroma easily.
Do NOT wash in the washing machine after use!
