Sorry for the delayed reply.
Thank you very much! I love it - the magnum is beautiful!... will try to attach some pictures.
Cheers Greg (USA)
PS - that is not me - that is my friend who suggested the magnum to me - he was at your shop this past summer where he bought the other knives!

Bonjour Yann,
now we are proud owners of Le Chamois, 2x Le Capuchadou and Magnum.
With best regards from Germany

Many thanks
The Magnum is my 4th knife from you the photos shown on your website never match up to the reality- they are always more beautiful in the hand ( the mark of hand made). 
The Magnum is no exception every part flows into the other - I love the asymmetric sharpening on the blade and the corkscrew & lever work perfectly. 

Many thanks from Leo (UK)

I am now the proud owner of the most beautiful corkscrew ever made. Thank you so much! I am hugely impressed by the superb quality of your work and I am delighted that I asked you to make it for me.
Best regards,
Simon (UK)

Hi Fontenille Pataud Team,

many thanks, thats what I got today.



Ansgar Hummel (Germany)


Hi Gilles,

the Sommelier knife has just arrived. What a beautiful thing. You must be very proud of it. I am very proud to own it and doesn’t even matter if it doesn’t get used (it will). I might do a drawing of it, sitting by a bottle of Bordeaux and a bunch of black grapes; maybe some cheese.

Thank you very much.

Bonne chance et bonnes vacance!

Jerry (UK)


Dear Gilles and folks at Fontenille Pataud, The Laguiole Magnum with the special scales arrived this morning as I was talking with a neighbor on the front step. The craftsmanship is simply exquisite. The file work on the spring and the work on the bee are remarkable examples of steel art. I could not be happier. The neighbor will likely become a Fontenille Pataud customer. Best Regards

Robert Bachenberg(USA)


I truly LOVE the new Magnum wine opener!  I have used different wine openers through the years.  The Magnum out-performs every other and without question, it one of the most beautiful as well.

I highly recommend this product.  It will exceed your expectations!

Debra (USA)


I received my corkscrew today and it is amazing!!!
