Le Thiers Gentleman 12 cm Pocket Knife Carbon Fiber | Blade Tats Series

DETAILS

 Handcrafted in Thiers-France this knife was approved by the "Coute de Tie", the Guild which certifies the authenticity of 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 edge to the blade.

Consider this: This knife was 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
