This sleek pocket knife is a true staple piece, great for hiking, traveling and general use. The concealable blade folds seamlessly into a rounded ball handle. Highly ergonomic, this supple design prevents hand slippage and provides a safe resting area for the blade's tip. This item was handmade in the village of Nontron, a region of France where it is believed knife making began in the 13th Century. The wood-burned patterns on the handle make the knife an especially beautiful and unique utility tool.
