DETAILS

 Before the development of the Laguiole in the 19th century, French shepherds carried a knife called the "Capuchadou" (or "capujadou"). This knife was used for all daily tasks, from preparing lunch to care of their flocks of sheep. The four leaves clover was added for good luck.

Technical aspects:  The spring is made from 3 mm thick stainless steel Z20c13 and features a blade-stop that helps maintain the edge of the blade. The "Shamrock" as well as the handle's top are hand-chased with a file: This denotes artisan quality, unlike mass market knives that have welded springs and are machine decorated. The file work details create a unique knife, making each knife one of a kind.
Guilloche: The Guilloché series features additional chiseling of the spring, liners (top & bottom. The "bee" and the spring (4 leaf clover) of this knife are forged from one piece of stainless steel. The shamrock also features a genuine Lapis lazuli gemstone in its center

Consider this: This knife was entirely handmade in Europe's capital of cutlery "Thiers." The “Gilles®” Fontenille Pataud collection of knives are considered by many to be some of the best pocket knives money can buy. All Knives offered by Gilles are entirely made by a single craftsman from start to finish ensuring pride of ownership of the final piece.100% Made in France

Handle Material: Horn Tip / Bos Taurus (France) - Tip of the horn is the hardest and most praised.
