1 left in stock - Order now.

Le Thiers pocket is the newest and smallest of the Thiers series offered by Fontenille Pataud. This knife is small enough to be carried in a front pocket or a purse.

Handcrafted in Thiers-France, this knife was Le Thiers Pocket 10 cm 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 pocket 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 pocket by Fontenille Pataud provides a secure locking blade, a smooth mechanism, and a solid blade stop to protect the edge of the blade.

Technical aspects: Smooth, easy opening & closing is 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.

Handle Material: Stabilized burled beech "End-Grain" or "Bois Debout" harvested in France. End grain is the grain of wood seen when it is cut across the growth rings. Rather than cutting a plank of wood the trunk's length, end grain wood is actually cut at a 90-degree angle to the grain. This type of cut exposes the character of the wood rings and graining.
