Yssingeaux Classic Pocket Knife

 
 
 

The Yssingeaux (pronounced "e seɪn jo") is named after its birthplace of "Yssingeaux" a village in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region of France. The version of the knife you see today was baptized Yssingeaux around 1920 but was also found in slightly different formats since the late 1800s under the name ""Issoire", "Bourbonnais (1890)", "Façon Chabrol (1908)" and "Le Basque (1912)". Today, Fontenille Pataud also offers a slightly more contemporary version of this knife that features a lock back system named "5 Coqs". Technical aspects: This knife features a solid hardened blade stop to help prevent the blade's edge from making contact with the inner area of the spring. The knife's handle is progressively wider toward the bottom. This characteristic provides a safer grip.
Blade Size: 8.8 cm (3.45")|Handle Size: 11 cm (4.33") Open Size: 20 cm (7.80 ")

EXACT KNIFE PICTURED

No one wants to view photos of a beautiful and unique pocket knife and receive something not even close to the representative photo. It is common practice for retailers to show an exceptional knife to trigger a sale and ship something similar but not as attractive. If you are dissatisfied with your knife and you purchased it oversea you will need to: 1. Pay for costly international return shipping or 2. Keep the knife and wish you had purchased it from us. This is why we take photos of each pocket knife, you can see exactly what you are going to receive. Although taking 1000's of photos a month is literary a full-time position, we don't charge extra for this service!
THINGS TO LOOK FOR
1. The file work on the springs' top are individually hand-filled. As a result, each top is unique.
2. Two handles made from the same type of material can have very different patterns.
