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 London Wharncliff Slipjoint Folder by Fontenille Pataud is their reinterpretation of the sea knife that proudly served Breton sailors for daily work, meals, or during their off-duty hours. Drawing inspiration from the historical model, they have envisioned a modern knife. Its blade locking system ensures perfect safety through a rear locking mechanism. The London, like its ancestor, proves effective both on land and at sea. So, with your London by Fontenille Pataud, set sail!
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.
This marvelous daily carry folder makes a wonderful gift that will last a lifetime!
