Before the development of the Laguiole knife 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 for their flocks of sheep. The Fontenille Pataud collection of knives are considered by many to be some of the best French pocket knives money can buy. 100% Made in France.. Each Capuchadou features a smooth mechanism, and a solid blade stop to protect the edge of the blade when closing the knife.
