Old style Spanish Gabacha friction folder (no spring, no lock) with carbon steel blade and simple one piece plastic handle.
Founded in 1917 in Solsona, Spain by two brothers, and currently run by the third generation of the family, Pallares is the last surviving workshop in an area one-time famous (since the 1600’s) for its knife making workshops. Pallares strives to use traditional, high quality materials and have always been known for well tempered steel. Their knives are completely hand ground and assembled and have wonderful cutting feel and good edge retention.
This knife is NOT stainless. Extra care should be taken to keep it dry when not in use to keep from rusting! No dishwasher.
