CABRILLO 1

From #KOTD to Hypebeast, Maxim.com and Cool Material; The Cabrillo by Rick Maderis first debut in 2015 as a Expedition Knife with roots pointing to the Pacific Northwest.

The Cabrillo shape was inspired by a Morion, a Spanish helmet, and has a recurve and deep plunge which reduces the overall surface level and also allows air to pass. This dramatically reduces the chance of a knife getting stuck.

Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo (1475-1543) was a Spanish explorer who led the first Spanish expedition to explore the west coast of the United States. In 1541 Antonio de Mendoza, the viceroy of New Spain, selected Cabrillo to establish a trading route between Central America and the Spice Islands; an exploratory mission. Cabrillo's expedition is popularized by his findings of southern California's San Diego bay. Before Cabrillo's death in 1543, he ordered his pilot, Bartolome Ferrer to continue north. Research indicates Cabrillo's crew reached southern Oregon.
