Le Thiers® Nature 11 cm Pocket Knife Poplar Burl

1 left in stock - Order now.

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® Nature 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® Nature 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.

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 contacting the inner area of the spring.

You will receive the actual folding knife shown in the photos.
No one wants to view photos of a beautiful and unique knife and receive something not even close to the representative image; this is why we take pictures of each piece. Select your One-Of-A-Kind knife!

Things to Look For
The file work on the springs (top of handle) are individually hand filled by a French artisan, therefore all are different. Additionally, two handles made from the same material can have very different patterns.
