The Basque Yatagan folding knife was created and manufactured for tobacco growers in southwestern France.

This knife include a YATAGAN blade, Turkish origin. YATAGAN designates a sword or a large knife with an oblique and curved blade.

The Basque knife has a traditional decoration of 10 stainless rivets inlayed on the pads of his handle.

Traditionally, the handle was decorated with large "rosettes" that had the advantage of ensuring a better grip of the Basque knife.

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.
