The pouch is an artisan product too, hand made in France.
Manufactured from 1890, Rouennais was intended for Norman and Picardy farmers and herders. It is above all a country knife, essential for breeders who appreciated its sharpness and even used it to clean cow's tails, hence its nickname "cow's tail".
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.
