Hand made in France by Fontenille Pataud featuring a stainless blade, stainless bolster and hand filed spring. Handle is hafted in curly birch.
The 5 Coqs design comes from a traditional old fashioned French shape. The name translates from Yssingeaux; where in local dialect 'SIN' means five and 'JO' means cockerel. This knife releases and folds with ease by pushing on the rooster crest.
Fontenille Pataud is a small family business located in Thiers, in the beautiful Auvergne region in France. Thiers is world famous for its manufacturing of knives and cutlery.
They are well known for their Laguiole style knives, but other regional styles including the Vendetta (from Corsica), Yssingeaux, Saint-Bernard, and Basque knives.
