Laguiole Le Pocket Guilloche 10.5cm by Fontenille Pataud


Same knife as the "XS 9 CM" in a slightly larger version (10.5cm). Laguiole "Le Pocket" knife incorporates a precision lock back mechanism to ensure that the blade locks securely when in use. The addition of Teflon washers will ensure that the knife action operates smoothly and securely during opening and closing. This knife features a one-piece forged spring and "Bee", as well as a hand-chiseled blade top and liners. Gilles Gilles offers 2 types of "Le Pocket, "The classic" and the more elaborate (and time-consuming) "GUILLOCHE". What is a Forged Bee? You can recognize a forged bee when you look just below it, where it meets the decorated spring. If you do not see any gaps, it's a good sign that the bee and spring were forged from the same piece of metal. You can also recognize a soldered bee by noticing a straight gap/ridge where the bee meets the spring. Most inexpensive French pocket knives found on the market have a soldered bee. Blade Size: 8.3 cm (3.25") | Handle Size: 10.5 cm (4.13") including back lock release | Open Size: 18.7 cm (7.3/8")
