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. Their team is comprised of eight skilled craftsmen and apprentices. Gilles Steinberg, owner and master craftsman, manages the group. 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 is proudly made in conjunction with the Zuria Brothers, Corsican knifemakers from Bonifacio. This beautiful collector's 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.
The buffalo horn scales are carved with elaborate fluting and accented with exquisite sterling silver wire braid.
The blade is crafted from stunning, high contrast Hakkapella pattern stainless damascus, hardened to 56Hrc. The undulations of the patterned steel match the elegantly carved buffalo horn perfectly. Handmade nickel silver rivets complete the piece
This marvelous daily carry folder comes with a simple, protective leather pouch. This makes a wonderful gift that will last a lifetime!
