Alpin knife stainless steel 12C27
From the Rhone-Alpes region, circa 1880 - This small but relatively thick handled knife is the cousin of the Savoyard knife.
Hand filework on spring and blade.
Blade 11 cm stainless steel 12C27.
Mark "Grandfather" on the blade.
Mark G.R. on the tang.
These models are handcrafted with their original moulds which at that time did not have an empty space between the spring and the blade when the knife was closed. We advise our client to follow the blade without snapping it on the spring so as to avoid damaging the edge when closing the knife. Thus, he will preserve the edge as well as the correct working of his knife for a long time.
