The bouchonnage polishing is done by hand. Each liner is one of a kind (file worked ) as in a traditional high end knife. It features easy one hand opening and closing. Handcrafted in Thiers-France it is guaranteed by the Coute de Tie, the Guild which certifies authenticity of design.
Its liner-lock opening and closing system is a mechanism frequently used when making pocket knives.
The system is quite simple: one of the liner plates is cut and made to act as a spring. The sprung part of the liner plate slips into a space freed by opening the knife. Your blade is locked open. To unlock it, use your thumb to push sideways on the spring, freeing the blade. You can therefore open and close your knife one-handed!
Did you know?
The Thiers knife is a trademark of the brotherhood of Thiers cutlers: "La Confrérie du Couté de Tié".
Its making complies to strict requirements by a guild-mastership, close to those of 1582 ("La Confrérie du Couté de Tié", jurande 1582). The confraternity has regulated Thiers cutlery as a whole for nearly 5 centuries. Visiting Masters are authorised to monitor and ensure the 1994 rules are being followed at every step of the crafting of the knife.
