Knives made in France
Since its creation in 1890, the company has been manufacturing its knives in the heart of the French Alps. Today our plant in Chambéry (Savoie, France) covers a surface area of almost 60,000 square-feet and employs 110 people, of which 60 work directly in production.
All our products (traditional pocket-knives with carbon steel and stainless steel blades, specialist pocket-knives, sharp slim pocket-knives, garden tools, elegant table knives, etc.) are entirely manufactured in our factory in Chambéry.
