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, similar to those first set out in 1582 ("La Confrérie du Couté de Tié", jurande 1582). The confraternity has regulated Thiers cutlery as a whole for nearly 5centuries. Visiting Master Cutlers are authorised to monitor this, ensuring the 1994 rules are being followed at every step of the crafting of the knife.
Its liner-lock opening and closing system is a mechanism frequently used when making pocket knives.
The system is simple: one of the plates is cut so as to act as a spring. When the blade is completely open, a spring plate exerts lateral pressure and leans into alignment with the heel of the blade, thus blocking it open by lengthways pressure. 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!
