Exceptional knife, only made by the most experienced cutlers of Claude DOZORME Master Cutlery workshops.
The Thiers RLT pocket knife by Claude Dozorme is already an exceptional knife in its design, conception and qualities.
It is the first and only Thiers knife to integrate a higly innovative ball-bearing mechanism (RLT): the ball-bearing mechanism provides a unique smooth opening and closing of the blade. "Thiers" is a type of knife (as Laguiole is another one) made in Thiers, the Cutlery capital city of France, which actually and historically has always produced the famous Laguiole. Le Thiers knife characterizes by its slightly round aerodynamic handle and blade shape, a bit like a shark feeling, ready to cut! Magnificent knives in general.
The Thiers RLT knife work of the spring is a manual and artisanal "guilloche".
Thanks to its handle fitted with Torx screws and the wrench to retighten or dismount the axis, it is a entirely dislountable knife.
Claude DOZORME Cutlery know-how pushed its Thiers RLT models into the luxury knife category by offering a magnificent Damascus steel blade, extremely hard and aesthetic with deep and visible damascus patterns. Damascus was a type of multiple layers steel used for manufacturing sword blades centuries ago in the Near East. These swords were characterized by distinctive patterns of banding and mottling reminiscent of flowing water. Such blades were reputed to be tough, resistant to shattering and capable of being honed to a sharp, resilient edge. The technics were losts and rediscovered to produce high quality and luxury knives.
This piece handle is made of Juniper wood (Cupressaceae) harvested in France. Juniper is a magnificent wood with a very pleasant and long lasting cedar-like scent, which makes this knife very special.
It is delivered with it leather pouch within a varnished oak presentation box + a certificate of guarantee.
Brand: Claude Dozorme
We Like: Magnificent & innovative knife, a combination of tradition and modernity, the soul of Claude Dozorme.
We Recommend: Thiers RLT knives have no security lock systems (it is a forced switchblade closing system). It is always safer to carry it in its leather pocket. Do not wash with water or in the dishwasher: Claude Dozorme knife handles are made of precious components. Water will damage them. Just use a dry tissue.
