Origins of Canary Island "Naife" Discovered

Naife or Cuchillo Canario

The Canary Islands "naife", a popular tool for centuries with farmers in the islands, has it's origins in Albacete and Toledo in the 16th Century and gets its name from the English word, "knife". Indispensable in the cultivation of bananas, the major difference between the Canary Islands' and mainland versions is the size of its steel blade.
