Corsica is a real land of knives since antiquity and the Corsican cutlery industry has become a real tradition.
There is no such thing as a "Corsican knife" but "Corsican knives"!
Like many farming areas, the Corsican knife was first and foremost a tool used by farmers for their daily work.
Since then, Corsican knives have followed their history with new models that combine tradition and modernity.
In the Fontenille Pataud workshop, our craftsmen traditionally handmade outstanding knives for several generations, as usual in the city of Thiers. Each one of our knifemakers hopes to create especially for you a sustainable product that will become your every day to carry.
We are proud to say that our knives are handed down and offered from generation to generation, such as the Corsican knives with locking system, which allows a safe use. Much more than knives, our Corsicans made in France are true life partners.
