Beautiful and good knives...

Faverolles in Berry

Less than twenty minutes from the castle of Valençay, this small village of less than 1000 inhabitants was chosen by the illustrious Benjamin Rabier, illustrious in the first sense of the word, since he is, among other things, the author of the drawing of an animal symbolizing happy living, the drawing of the "Laughing Cow". It is also the place of work of another articsan creator of an exceptional cutlery: Samuel Leucart, creator of the Cutlery of the Bull.


Do you have any idea...?

Do you have any idea of the steps involved in making a knife?
In fact, it is very complex...
There is on the one hand the metal work, cutting, drilling, creation of the miter, trimming, tempering, adjusting, final trimming...

I will skip the steps of the bolster making, to get to the steps of the handle making with cutting, grinding, drilling, tracing and trimming followed by shaping and polishing. All this leads to the final assembly, without forgetting the rivet grinding, the polishing of the handle, the treatment of the wood and the sharpening.


Go and see on the spot...

It is an unusual visit, of course, and very interesting. First, you will meet a passionate person, which is always interesting whatever the field, and then you will be able to follow the mysterious steps of the making of a coutezu, and better understand why it is an exceptional object.

And, if you feel like it, you can order your own knife, made to measure, based on your own choices...
