    Entirely hand made in Europe's capital of cutlery "Thiers." The “Gilles®” Fontenille Pataud collection of knives are considered by many experts to be some of the best Laguiole 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.

    Features: One Piece forged spring and Bee - Hand chiseled spring top - Lock Back Design - Around 1:30 hrs of labour by one craftsman to create this knife.

A solid hardened blade stop is included to prevent the edge of the blade from making contact with the spring's back. The traditional bee is solid and forged into the spring. The spring and bee are then hand-chased with a file, unlike cheap mass market products that have welded bee and springs that are machine decorated.
