Capuchadou 12 cm Guilloche Burled beech End Grain

1 in stock

Before the development of the Laguiole 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 caring for their flock of sheep. The four-leaf clover was added to provide good luck.

Guilloche: The Guilloché series features additional chiseling of the spring and liners (top & bottom. The "bee" and the spring (4-leaf clover) of this knife are forged from one piece of stainless steel.

The shamrock also features a genuine gemstone in its center.
Pink Stone: Amethyst
Red Stone: Cornaline
Blue Stone: Lapis Lazuli
Beige Stone: Tiger's eye

Consider this: This knife was handmade in Europe's capital of cutlery, "Thiers." The Gilles® Fontenille Pataud collections of knives are considered by many to be some of the best pocket knives money can buy. All Knives offered by Gilles are made entirely by a single craftsman, ensuring pride of ownership of the final piece. 100% Made in France

Technical aspects:  The spring is made from 3 mm thick stainless steel Z20c13 and features a blade-stop that helps maintain the blade's edge. The "Shamrock," as well as the handle's top, are hand-chased with a file: This denotes artisan quality, unlike mass-market knives that have welded springs and are machine decorated. The file work details create a unique knife, making each knife one of a kind.

Shopping for a unique pocket knife not only holds the promise of ownership but the excitement of finally beholding an item admired through a screen. However, all too often, what was envisioned and what is unboxed bear a startling, sometimes painful discrepancy.

You will receive the actual folding knife shown in the photos.
No one wants to view photos of a beautiful and unique knife and receive something not even close to the representative image; this is why we take pictures of each piece. Select your One-Of-A-Kind knife!

Things to Look For
The file work on the springs (top of handle) are individually hand filled by a French artisan, therefore all are different. Additionally, two handles made from the same material can have very different patterns.

Stabilized burled beech "End-Grain" or "Bois Debout" in French harvested in France. End grain is the grain of wood seen when it is cut across the growth rings. Rather than cutting a plank of wood the trunk's length, end grain wood is actually cut at a 90-degree angle to the grain. This type of cut exposes the character of the wood rings and graining.

Pocket knives are shipped same business day from Florida when ordered by 4 PM Eastern time. UPS delivery can be expected in 1 to 3 business days depending on destination. International shipping options are available at checkout.
