Galeam slipjoint carbon steel in horn by Thiers-Issard
The slipjoint version of that interesting piece.
An old stock of blades, from the 1930’s, was found from an old cutlery: Sauvagnat-Grimaud. Thiers-Issard decided to create a knife, true to the tradition, using those NOS blades.
Black horn full handle (shadow pattern), with easy pull notch.
NOS carbon steel sheepsfoot blade, satin finish and slipjoint mechanism with handfiled backspring and halfstop.
The blade still has the SG (Sauvagnat-Grimaud) marking with the cavalry helmet and is riveted on NOS brass rosettes.
Handle: 4.53in (11.5cm).
Blade: 3.74in (9.5cm).
Blade thickness at ricasso: 0.08in (2mm)
Handle thickness: 0.55in (14mm)
Weight: 3.3oz (96g).
The blade comes from an old stock that is almost 100 years old and may show some pitting.

For the price paid this is an awesome knife. Well made beautifully finished, and the age of the blade makes this a must have for my collection!
