# 4928 / Antique Lock Blade Gentleman Self defense Folder – Chatellerault, Mid to late19th Century

Very nice French gentleman self defense folder commonly referred to as a *Chatellerault*, referring to the original place where this type of knives were crafted.

Back locked single edged clip point carbon steel blade with false edge, striped lock tab

Wonderful mother of pearl slabs over steel liners fastened by three rivets, steel bolsters

Overall condition are very good, blade has been sharpened and the edge looks to me to be a little bit down in shape by the tang but it remains i full length with full tip and locks up firmly with no up and down play

Few pitting to the steel blade due to time but no rust, no damage to note to the handles

The knife measures nearly 11,6 cm long when folded and 21,5 cm long when blade is out
