Fontenille Pataud: a gentleman's pocket knife
The gentleman's knives of Fontenille Pataud represent everything you expect from a Laguiole pocket knife: class, craft, style and natural products. The pocket knives or flick knives of Fontenille Pataud are made in Thiers under the management of Gilles Steinberg, the owner of Fontenille Pataud. The brand has been making Laguiole knives since the 1920s.
Laguiole is the name of a small place in France where this style of knives originated from. Laguiole has become a generic name. There are only a few manufacturers who make high quality Laguiole knives. Fontenille Pataud is one of them and stands out because of the use of unique materials.
