Galeam carbon steel in smoked oak by Thiers-Issard
Now, that is an 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.
Smoked oak full handle, with easy pull notch.
NOS carbon steel sheepsfoot blade, satin finish and friction folder (2 pins) mechanism.
The blade still has the SG (Sauvagnat-Grimaud) marking with the cavalry helmet and is riveted on NOS brass rosettes.
Handle: 4.72in (12cm).
Blade: 3.74in (9.5cm).
Blade thickness at ricasso: 0.08in (2mm)
Handle thickness: 0.59in (15mm)
Weight: 1.4oz (40g).

Amazing bit of history! Wonderfully made knife, basic yet classy, the only thing bad is the blade is a little soft! Could be it wasn't hardened much all those years ago? Or time has gotten to it? Still worth the money
