Today, Les Fines Lames announces that they will be releasing a new line of their popular Le Petit cutters that are also foldable knives. The new cutters will each feature a special version of Damascus steel. These blades are made with metals created by the Swedish company Damasteel. The specific type of metal is known as Bjorkman Twist which is a more modern version of Damascus steel that is known for having a more aggressive pattern in the metal that Damascus steel is known for.
Totally crafted in the capital of French cutlery, Thiers, Le Petit by Les Fines Lames is an authentic friction folder knife. Small like a pocketknife, its size is 4.53 inches, and it has a two-and-a-half-inch non-lockable blade made from 14C28N stainless steel offering a razor-sharp cutting edge, able to cut through the biggest cigars, up to 70 gauge.
The first traces of Damascus like steel can be traced back in India, 2,000 years ago under the name of “Wootz”. These mesmerizing blades were reserved only for the elite, as it required considerable skill to produce it. Weapons and other items made with this noble technic gained popularity in the third or fourth century in the city of Damascus, Syria. A city that popularized the Damascus steel and made it their own. Unfortunately, this ancient style of Damascus steel is now lost. The techniques and knowledge vanished sometimes in the 1700’s for unknown reasons.
Le Petit Damasteel Bjorksman Twist carry an MSRP of $389 and are offered in three models:
