Yssingeaux Classic Pocket Knife - Studded Black Horn
This is It!
The Yssingeaux (pronounced "e seɪn jo") knife, named after its origin in the village of Yssingeaux in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region of France, has a rich history. The current version coined Yssingeaux around 1920, evolved from slightly different designs dating back to the late 1800s. These earlier forms include the "Issoire," "Bourbonnais (1890)," "Façon Chabrol (1908)," and "Le Basque (1912)."
