Pocket Knives & Multitools
Le Thiers Gentleman by Fontenille Pataud
The Gentleman collection created by Le Thiers by Fontenille Pataud is an homage to a small town in France called Thiers. For centuries Le Thiers has been the heart of the French knife industry. All knives crafted in Le Thiers are made by hand.
The fact that Le Thiers’ knives are made by hand is clear when you look at the finish. Each knife is unique and has its own charm. The remarkable finish enhanced with natural materials take care of a characteristic design. This knife should be a part of every gentleman’s collection!
The Le Thiers Gentleman Knives have a secure locking system, a smooth mechanism, and a solid blade-stop to maintain the sharpness of your knife.
The blade is made from 14C28N stainless steel with a hardness of 58-59 Hrc. This knife has been equipped with a lock on the blade itself called back-lock. This lock guarantees your safety. Due to this back-lock a heavy spring has also become obsolete. As a result the knife opens and closes easily.
When closing the blade is caught by a pin. As such the sharp blade is prevented from hitting the inside of the knife which is great for the sharpness of your knife.
The handles have been made from natural or animal materials. Often meticulous in its design. These products have a natural variation which means that each handle made from this material is unique. This is also what makes these knives so special. When you purchase one of these magnificent knives you will also receive a leather pouch. Another artisanal product made by hand in France.
