Here is another highly ergonomic folding knife from the Fontenille Pataud's Corsican series. Unlike the Rondanira knife, this model features a modified single edge spear point blade but note that this is not a throwing knife. This fairly long knife can be used as a daily table knife. This is not a split-joint knife, while open the blade cannot be folded unless the lock-back is pressed firmly. 

The blade is stamped with the Corsican "Moor's head" found on the flag of this proud and remote "French" island where Napoleon Bonaparte was born.

This Corsican knife like all others offered by Fontenille Pataud was created in collaboration with the Zuria family of Bonifacio Corsica.

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 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.

Handle Material: Stabilized burled beech "End-Grain" or "Bois Debout" harvested in France. End grain is the grain of wood seen when it is cut across the growth rings. Rather than cutting a plank of wood the length of the trunk, end grain wood is actually cut at a 90-degree angle to the grain. This type of cut exposes the character of the wood rings and graining.
