Handle material: Hand-shaped from 40 to 50-year-old Boxwood harvested from locally grown trees and air-dried for 5 years.
Using old boxwood assures an unprecedented degree of hardness and prevents splits commonly found in such hardwoods. Boxwood is best suited for turning and is commonly used to create small wood objects such as chess pieces, musical instruments, and knife handles.
Handle type: Early 20th-century antique reproduction.
Locking system: Slipjoint. The blade is held in position by a strong "back spring" but is not "locked". Most French traditional pocket knives continue to use this proven system.
