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.
This exceptional mushroom knife is handmade in Gilles' shop in Thiers, France. The 3 in. curved tip is perfect for cutting mushroom stalks while harvesting in the woods. The back spring, made from Z20 stainless steel, has been meticulously hand fileworked.
The nicely rounded handle is formed from first choice olive wood.
Excellent work throughout. A perfect gift for any mushroom harvester!
