Steel / hardness: 120 layers damascus stainless. Fontenille-Pataud was founded in 1929. They were admired and revered for their expertise and use of ivvory, horn and other fine wood. As a testimony to their craft, some of these knives are permanently on display at the French knife museum in Thiers, France. This tradition of quality and beauty continued through the years, including management and ownership changes. Gilles Steinberg acquired Fontenille-Pataud in 1994. The sale was more than simple business. The previous owner, Mr. Bargoin, selected Gilles to continue the Fontenille-Pataud business. He was confident that Gilles, with his hard work ethic and his passion for tradition would be well suited to use his youthful skills to bring the company into the quickly changing marketplace. With convenience, technology and globalization, today’s consumer faces a plethora of choices. Plastic handles, Chinese imports and clever marketing provided consumers with choices on quality, price and confusion. Fontenille-Pataud chose to leave the mass market mess by re-positioning its business and product line. HANDMADE IN FRANCE incl. Leather Sheath & Gift Box.
