Before the development of the Laguiole in the 19th century, French shepherds carried a knife called the "Capuchadou" (or "capujadou"). This knife was used for all daily tasks, from preparing lunch to care of their flocks of sheep.
Fontenille Pataud, the makers of the finest cutlery are proud to reissue and interpret the ancestor of the Laguiole knife. Their excellence in manufacturing will ensure that this knife will prove to be the perfect gift or purchase for all connoisseurs and collectors.
These stainless Damascus models can be collected or used as everyday carry. The Damascus steel we’re using is from Damasteel® and the patterns will last the life of the knife. The Damascus Capuchadou 12 cm knife is a premium choice for connoisseurs.
