materiauThe material used and chosen for your knife handle gives it an exclusive and unique finish.

The warthog tusk is certainly one of the most exceptional natural materials. It is completely free to use, not a threatened species. It does not need a CITES certificate. This Phacochoerus Africanus lives in a burrow, and has the densest ivory of the animal kingdom. This gives it a specific identity from one tusk to another: cracks, streaks, zoning and spots of colour. The use of raw tusk gives it a more savage and hunting aspect, whilst a mirror polished tusk will enhance its beauty and sophistication. The only legal ivory not concerned by the Washington Convention.

 

The buffalo and black zebu horns, with very few streaks of colour, on a full handle finish, bring discretion and simplicity to the product. This is a good choice for lasting quality that will survive the evolution of fashion The blonde horn, with waves of different colours, is very bright and often pleasant to use because of its see through effect.

The deer antler, beautifully pearlescent, continues the great French tradition of hunting with hounds.

 

The choice of noble woods is impressive: solid woods, Macassar ebony, ebony from Gabon, snakewood, walnut, rosewood, or olive.

There are also new materials: mammoth tooth, giraffe bone, camel bone, and the surface crust of a mammoth tusk.

 

CouteauThe maintenance of the blade. Taking care of your exclusive Made in France.

At the risk of repeating myself, please use your knife and make it live, The way you hold it gives it a unique patina that creates its character. And finally, to clean the blade, I am an unconditional fan of a piece of cotton soaked in a glass of wine or, failing that, using my thumb and index finger, slid along the steel. Then let the blade dry in the open air.

 

If an accident should occur to the razor of the blade, do not use a whetstone grain that is too coarse. It is better to take your time and use a very fine-grained stone, or ask a professional to do it.
