Fontenille Pataud Laguiole table knife set made in Thiers France with the high level of quality craftsmanship and finish that Fontenille Pataud is known for.

4 1/4” stainless blade, 9” overall length

The Laguiole knife has a distinctive design influenced by the Spanish Navaja. A smaller, more tactile version was made for the sheep-herders on the Aubrac plateau in France, and was named after the town Laguiole. In addition to the iconic ‘bee’ or ‘fly’ on the spring, typically they feature a semi yataghan shaped blade, a slip joint mechanism with a slim tapered handle made from natural material, traditionally cow horn.

The name and design of ‘Laguiole’ fell into public domain, and can legally be manufactured all over the world by anyone, so it is important to distinguish the different makers of the Laguiole style, as there are vast differences in quality of manufacture and material. There is no mistaking these for cheap imitations.

Fontenille Pataud is a small family business located in the beautiful Thiers, Auvergne region in France, we are big fans of the quality of their folding and table knives. Thiers is world famous for its manufacturing of knives and cutlery.

This is a stainless steel knife. It should be hand washed and towel dried. Dishwasher use will result in degraded edge and handle. Consistent long term exposure to moisture can lead to oxidation.

Use on a quality wooden cutting board will help the knife stay sharper for longer. Use on hard surfaces like plates and bamboo will reduce the edge life and can result in edge damage.

We recommend hand sharpening on whetstones. We have found that most western knives perform best with a medium finish starting around 1000 grit. Avoid pull through sharpeners and non-water cooled mechanized sharpening. Steel honing rods work well with this knife.
