Le Saint-Martin: The Western knife! Used in the Vendee and Charente. This knife is one of the few models invented by the clergymen and not by french shepherds.

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 our high-end French folding. Much more than knives, they are true life partners.

My Laguiole arrived today and it is a real work of art, which I will treasure and eventually pass down to my son (not too soon I hope) One day I hope I will be in a position to buy a Damascus version.
