Le Thiers ® Nature knife online

We are proud to introduce our brand new folding knife: Le Thiers ® Nature knife

This knife features precision mechanism with a secure back-lock. Le Thiers® nature is a smaller & lighter version of our Le Thiers® Gentleman knife. From your pocket to the restaurant, it will soon become your favourite Every Day Carry.
Handcrafted in Thiers-France it is guaranteed by the Coute de Tie, the Guild which certifies authenticity of design. The name “Le Thiers ® Nature by Fontenille Pataud” is a tribute to our city of Thiers. Like Solingen in Germany or Sheffield in England, Thiers is since several centuries the hub of the French knives and cutlery industry. Le Thiers® Nature by Fontenille Pataud offers a good balance between the blade and the handle thanks to its special spring. A groove into the back of the spring allows the blade to fold in. Le Thiers ® Nature by Fontenille Pataud provides a secure locking blade, a smooth mechanism and a solid blade stop to keep a long edge to your blade.

Available in carbon fiber ultra-light.




This le thiers knife is handmade in our workshop in Thiers
