Here it is: the D2 Deluxe version of Le Pointu (The Pointy) named after a emblematic boat of Marseilles (known as Massalia for 2500 years!).
The blade is in D2 Tool Steel, the action is smooth, the lockup is solid. This is a great EDC tool, extra flat and chisel ground.
A knife made to be shipple friendly, easy to open and close just by pushing the blade with the thumb.
Elegance and strenght in a featherweight package. This is unique offer in the cutlery world where form follow function.
My wife has already adopted the Olive Wood version of Le Pointu. It’s a true mix of hightech design and Provencal natural roots.
This is a framelock !
Mine got beautiful fiber carbon scales. There is a true attention to details, the little big folder is flawless.
Tip up carrying… generous lanyard hole…
This was just a glimpse as now it’s going to be used and test and we will update that post later in the summer !
Le Pointu can be seend and ordered at
and for any questions Xavier is reachable at xavier (at) nobug (dot) fr
Stay tuned for more about those little jewels !
OK by EDCing this little big knife you discover how well the ergos have been thought! The round thumb place on the axis of the folder is really something new in the cutlery. The cuts are powerful and controlled. I was also very please with the easy way I can clean the knife after working with it.
Sharpness is easy to get and maintain. The opening is made with a Pointu Drop, holding the blade like a spyderco. The opening is easy and secure: an elegant gesture.
Also the knife is carried in the watch pocket of my denim: perfect size ! 🙂
