Like many pocket knives in France, it has a second name, which refers to the blacksmith who made it at the time: GIMEL-YATAGAN.

The shape of the handle and the Yatagan blade refer to its origin in the south of France and its proximity to Spain.
The handles used to be made of fine materials such as white buffalo bone, blond horn-tip, boxwood, even ivory.
