This is the most ergonomic folding knife we have ever featured in the last 20 years. The long rounded handle paired with a much shorter blade than knives in that size range gives this knife amazing "working power." The "pistol" like grip feels very secure and will give you instantaneous confidence in this knife's ability to get any job done.
This knife was named after one of Corsica's most secluded white sand beaches. Rondinara is located a few kilometers from Bonifacio in southeast Corsica. This Corsican knife was created in collaboration with the Zuria family of Bonifacio Corsica.
Consider this: This knife is 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
Technical aspects: Smooth, easy opening & closing is provided by a Teflon-assisted Lock-Back system. This knife also features a solid hardened blade stop to help prevent the blade's edge from making contact with the inner area of the spring.
Handle Material: Cattle Bone (Bovine, France). Note that it is not unusual to find areas of different shades of beige and small streaks of darker colors within the bone. These features only contribute to the uniqueness of such material.
