Le Thiers® Pocket Amourette Handle

Le Thiers pocket is the newest and smallest "Thiers series" of pocket knives 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 blade's edge.

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.

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.

Snakewood aka Amourette (Brosimum guianense) is a gorgeous wood that originates mostly from Brazil's Suriname valley.
The part sold as snakewood is really the heartwood of the much larger tree. This wood is usually felled with axes and carried on the backs of natives over streams and through jungle areas.
Each tree felled is monitored, the Brazilian government has developed a strict permit process to control harvesting. The name was inspired by the snakeskin-like markings that decorate this exotic wood.
Initially deep red in color, snakewood changes color upon being exposed to air, making the wood eventually turn reddish-brown, as you see it today.
