Truffles, mushrooms of the tuber genus, are mushrooms that grow under the ground, so to search for truffles we must use dogs trained to collect black truffles. We must also use specific tools to dig the truffle out of the ground, the truffle knives.
A knife for collecting black truffles is a tool that on the one hand should allow us to chop the earth and on the other hand allow us to dig up the truffles causing them the least possible damage. For this reason, they have both resistant tips as a beak and wider areas as a shovel to be able to remove the surrounding soil.

If you are interested in buying a truffle knife, you must first know its characteristics, since they have nothing to do with the characteristics of a mushroom knife. The main characteristic of a truffle knife is its sturdiness, since it must break the dry earth and allow us to dig up the truffle. For this reason, the preferred material for truffle machetes is steel or wrought iron.
Another characteristic of truffle harvesting knives is their particular pointed blade shape. Thus, while breaking the surface of the earth and sticking the knife into it, we can extract the earth that surrounds the truffle.
