LE THIERS® GENTLEMAN CLASSIC

The name “Le Thiers ® Gentleman by Fontenille Pataud” is a tribute to our city of Thiers. Like Solingen in Germany or Sheffield in England, Thiers is since several centuries the hub of the French knives and cutlery industry. Le Thiers ® Gentleman by Fontenille Pataud offers a good balance between the blade and the handle thanks to its special forged spring. A groove into the back of the spring allows the blade to fold in. Le Thiers ® Gentleman by Fontenille Pataud provides a secure locking blade, a smooth mechanism and a solid blade stop to keep a long edge to your blade. 

This knife features precision mechanism with a secure back-lock.
Handcrafted in Thiers-France it is guaranteed by the Coute de Tie, the Guild which certifies authenticity of design.
