Yssingeaux 11 cm Classic Pocket Knife - Ironwood Handle

1 left in stock - Order now.

The Yssingeaux (pronounced "e seɪn jo") knife, named after its origin in the village of Yssingeaux in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region of France, has a rich history. The current version coined Yssingeaux around 1920, evolved from slightly different designs dating back to the late 1800s. These earlier forms include the "Issoire," "Bourbonnais (1890)," "Façon Chabrol (1908)," and "Le Basque (1912)."

Consider this: This knife is skillfully handcrafted in Thiers, Europe's renowned cutlery hub. Gilles® Fontenille Pataud's collection is highly regarded as some of the finest pocket knives in France. Each knife is crafted by a dedicated artisan, which ensures a sense of pride in owning the final piece.100% Made in France

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.
