Handcrafted in Thiers-France this knife was approved by the "Coute de Tie", the Guild which certifies the authenticity of design. The name “Le Thiers ® Gentleman by Fontenille Pataud” is a tribute to the city of Thiers. Like Solingen in Germany or Sheffield in England, Thiers has, for several centuries, been the hub of the French knives and cutlery industry. Le Thiers®Gentleman by Fontenille Pataud offers a good balance between the blade and the handle thanks to its special forged spring. A groove into the back of the spring allows the blade to fold in. Le Thiers ® Gentleman by Fontenille Pataud provides a secure locking blade, a smooth mechanism and a solid blade stop to protect the edge to the blade.
Technical aspects: Smooth, easy opening & closing is provided by a Teflon assisted lock back system. This knife also features a solid hardened blade stop to help prevent the blade's edge from making contact with the inner area of the spring.
