Handcrafted in Thiers-France, this knife was approved by the "Coute de Tie," the Guild, which certifies the authenticity of the 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 blade's edge.
Technical aspects: Smooth, easy opening & closing are 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.
Ram horn tip - France
The tip of the horn is the hardest and most durable, Inferior horn handles are made from the bottom of the horn which will warp with time.
Due to the uneven characteristic of Ram Horn, the metal rivets found on the handle may not be completely flush with this unique handle material.
