The Thiers® Advance by Fontenille Pataud is a sleek, forward-thinking pocket knife with an efficient blade locking system that seamlessly fits your everyday life.
Handcrafted in Thiers-France, the "Coute de Tie," the Guild, approved this knife, certifying the design's authenticity. The name Le Thiers® is a tribute to the city of Thiers.

Technical aspects: The Advance folding knife features a larger than usual front bolster, this feature makes the knife "handle heavy" which can be ideal for those who want to keep their grip on it without maintaining high pressure with their fingers or palm. This pocket knife features a Teflon-assisted Mid-lock system that makes opening and closing effortless. The knife also features a built-in blade stop that prevents the blade from making contact with the spring's inner area.
