Le Capuchadou Knife

This Fonenille Pataud Knife expresses the traditions of knives used by French shepherds.


Before the development of the Laguiole knife in the 1830s, the Capuchadou was the everyday knife of the shepherds and farmers of the Auvergne and Aubrac regions of France. A letter written in 1890 by the mayor of Laguiole stated that the Capuchadou was well liked “because of its convenience.” Made of thick steel, the Capuchadou had a fixed blade and a long drawn point. Fontenille Pataud, makers of fine cutlery, have reissued an interpretation of this rural knife, adorned with handsome juniper wood scales and featuring a shamrock in place of the Laguiole signature bee. Overall length: 6¾". Blade: 3". Imported.
