CAPUCHADOU - IRONWOOD - GUILLOCHE SERIES

  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 care of their flocks of sheep.

Technical aspects:  The spring is made from 3 mm thick stainless steel Z20c13 and features a blade-stop that helps maintain the edge of the blade. 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.

Guilloche:  The Guilloché series features additional chiseling of the spring, 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 Tiger's Eye gemstone in its center

Handle Material:  Desert Ironwood - World hardest wood and one of the most difficult to work with due to its density (Central America)
Blade:3" / 7.62 cm long 3 mm thick made of Sandvik 14C28N stainless steel - 56 Hrc.
