Mushroom Knife - Garden Knife Desert Ironwood Handle by Fontenille Pataud

1 left in stock - Order now.

 This Mushroom - Garden Knife was specifically created for mushroom picking, but it also excels as a garden and pruning tool. Unlike traditional knives, it has no bolsters, making it lightweight and nimble. The curved blade allows for a rocking motion, making it effortless to cut through stems, branches, and other plant matter. This design is especially useful when harvesting fruits and vegetables. Overall, its curved shape offers superior cutting performance, versatility, control, and less strain, making it a top pick among gardeners and foragers.

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.

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.

Desert Ironwood (Olneya tesota) - One of the world hardest wood and most difficult to work with due to its density.

This increasingly rare wood comes from dead trees that have been left to dry in the desert heat for decades. As it starts to fossilize, the wood turns reddish brown with a golden hue and beautiful veining. The wood from this very slow growing tree can be well over 100 years old. Harvested in Arizona or Northwestern Mexico.

Good to know: Ironwood can sometimes show tiny knots or small depressions within the wood. This is not considered a defect but rather a characteristic of this wood.

Pocket knives are shipped same business day from Florida when ordered by 4 PM Eastern time. UPS delivery can be expected in 1 to 3 business days depending on destination. International shipping options are available at checkout.
