A variant on the classic Douk-Douk knife, L'Ecurieul simalarly features its namesake embossed on its handle--in this case, a squirrel!
The spear point of the blade is reminiscent of Swiss Army knives, and features a slight hollow grind and nail nick for easy opening. Its simple design, consisting of only 6 parts (blade, handle, bale, spring, and 2 rivets) allows it to shrug off the hardest use and its slim profile carries easily in a pocket. The tang is a half-stop design which, combined with the strong back spring, provides a degree of safety against accidental closure.
This version features a bright, hard chrome finish on the handle for additional corrosion resistance and increased visibility. A very attractive and hard-wearing alternative to their traditional blueing.
