Fontenille Pataud 12 cm - the ' authentic ' Laguiole knife
The traditional Fontenille Pataud with a blade of 12 cm is the classic version of the Laguiole knife. Unfolded, the knife has an overall length of about 20 cm.. The handle is characterized by its sleek elegance. Of course the handle is also marked with the traditional shepherd's cross, which is shown on (almost) every Fontenille Pataud knife. The knives are individually hand made, making each knife unique.
Typical Laguiole construction
The classic Fontenille Pataud series is characterized by the typical Laguiole construction. This means that the knife has no lock, but works with a slip joint hinge. Opening and closing the folding knife is therefore noticeably heavier than with the backlock models. With normal use, the knife will not close unexpectedly, which is why the construction functions fine in most cases.
