Corsican L' Antò Classic pocket knife by Fontenille Pataud. This EDC features a clever locking blade system located on top of the handle. Easy and comfortable to use, each user will find his or her own way to trigger it. This Corsican knife like all others offered by Fontenille Pataud was created in collaboration with the Zuria family of Bonifacio Corsica.

Because we know those questions will be asked!

Does the Lock-Top feels "in the way" when using the knife?
No, quite the contrary, here is why. The lock-top is slightly curved to feel secure when pressed by the thumb. Additionally, the filling decoration on each side provides additional grip. 

What is the best technique you found to unlock the blade?
Although there are many ways to pull-up the Lock-Top we found that simply sliding the thumbnail under the gap is the most efficient and safe way to unlock the blade.

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

Technical aspects: Smooth, easy opening & closing is provided by a Teflon assisted Top-Lock 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.
