At the beginning of the 21st century, Italy is the only country in Europe whose edge tool makers still offer a wide range of regional shapes of billhooks blades. So far I have been unable to trace any 19th century or early 20th century catalogues, but the on-line catalogues of firms such as Angelo (B) or Leonelli still show an exceptionally wide range.
