The series '5 Coqs' by Fontenille Pataud owes his name to a a small town, Yssingeaux, in France. Pronounced like 'i-sin-jo' it means, in local dialect 'five young roosters'. The roosters aren't only featured in the name of the knife series. The blade also features a stylized rooster. The number '5' is beautifully made into the shape of the rooster. And the back of the knife is quite reminiscent to a rooster head with cockscomb. Pay close attention to the eyes of the rooster, which feature two colours. Also notice the pearl shean, that has been added to the alternative 'fly', which is shaped almost like an Eqyptian Ankh.Blade length (sharp part): 8.1 cm
The handle of this knife is made of juniper wood. This natural material is unique with every knife. Even the smell of the wood adds to the pleasure of using this knife. The back of the knife is tastefully decorated. A suede sheath is included.
