Navaja for self-defence and hunting

This type of knives was produced in France in the town of Thiers, mainly for the Spanish market. The knife is equipped with a cross-piece -so-called "guard." Guard served to protect the hand in fights and self-defense, and did not allow a wet hand to slide onto the blade on the hunt. The handle is made in a typical for Thiers and Chatellerault shape of the tail of a rattlesnake with a rattle at the end. Bolster also styled as the head of a rattlesnake, though some French researches believe that it is the French royal lily, and thus Thiers artisans gently and wittily pointed out the origin of the knife. Here you can see the original Thiers "Valero Jun" navaja from a private collection, used as the inspiration for our knife: link
