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. This 12 cm picnic knife features a conical 5 spiral screw and its size allow it to be considered as a table knife.
Consider this: This knife is entirely handmade in Europe's capital of cutlery "Thiers."
