Description: Of the many makers that create Laguiole-style knives, Fontenille Pataud is generally regarded as the best. Each knife is handmade to precision specs and is a work of visual and textural art. All of their knives are made in their workshop in Thiers, France by a small team of craftsmen. Keeping the company's size small and employing only the best cutlers keeps the quality and exclusiveness of these knives at a premium level.
The Corsican Vendetta knife is the iconic knife of Corsica island. The Fontenille Pataud Corsican Vendetta is proudly made in conjunction with the Zuria Brothers, Corsican knifemakers from Bonifacio. This beautiful Corsican Knife is expertly crafted, a lovely variation on the well-known Laguiole Guilloché Picnic Knife. In place of the traditional Laguiole bee, this piece features a stylized outline of the island of Corsica, formed from solid steel and forged into the spring. The forged spring is hand chased with bold hand file work, unique to this collectible Corsican Vendetta model.
Polished cow horn handle scales are set on stainless steel liners. Because the scales are natural horn, each one will vary somewhat in color.
The blade is crafted from14C28N stainless steel, hardened to 56 Hrc. .The spring has a blade stop mechanism that keeps the edge from contacting the spring - this helps keep the edge sharp longer. Each knife features hand filework unique to the knife. The hardened and satin finished stainless steel corkscrew is 5 ringed, 8mm in diameter.
This marvelous daily carry folder makes a wonderful gift that will last a lifetime!
