Features: One Piece forged spring and bee - Hand chiseled spring top and bee - One hand easy opening - Around 1:30 hrs of labor by one craftsman to create this knife.
Entirely hand made in Europe's capital of cutlery "Thiers". The “Gilles®” Fontenille Pataud collection of knives are considered by many experts to be of the HIGHEST quality craftsmanship money can buy . All Laguiole Knives offered by Gilles are entirely made by a single craftsman from start to finish insuring pride of ownership of the final piece.
Tecnical tips : Smooth and easy opening system . The ' Bee 'spring with its lock-back secure system is made from 3 mm thick stainless steel Z20c13. A solid hardened blade stop is provided : That helps maintain the edge of the blade. The traditional bee is solid and forged into the spring. The spring and bee are then hand-chased with a file: This denotes artisan quality, unlike inexpensive mass market products that have welded springs and are machine decorated. These details create a unique Laguiole knife, making each knife one of a kind. Note: Numbered Guarantee certificate from the manufacturer is included.
