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.
Fontenille Pataud, the makers of some of the finest cutlery in France are proud to reissue and interpret the ancestor of the Laguiole knife. Their excellence in manufacturing will ensure that this knife will prove to be the perfect gift or purchase for all connoisseurs and collectors.
The steak knives are the fixed version of the original folding knife and are handcrafted with the finest materials. The handles are ergonomic and perfectly balanced.
