This Mushroom - Garden Knife was specifically created for mushroom picking, but it also excels as a garden and pruning tool. Unlike traditional knives, it has no bolsters, making it lightweight and nimble. The curved blade allows for a rocking motion, making it effortless to cut through stems, branches, and other plant matter. This design is especially useful when harvesting fruits and vegetables. Overall, its curved shape offers superior cutting performance, versatility, control, and less strain, making it a top pick among gardeners and foragers.
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.
