French Bread Knife

Special Price $79.99 Regular Price $150.00
Lighter and more nimble than their German counterparts, French chefs knives offer greater control of the tip of the blade, and use more of a forward motion than a rocking one. While German knife makers are engineers using the latest in robotics, the French remain skilled artisans. Eric, our maitre coutelier (master knife maker) is one of the few who still does all of his grinding in his own shop, for a much thinner and more consistent edge. Each hot-dropped blade is forged from high-carbon stainless steel and finished with an exquisite handle of Sicilian olivewood, fully seasoned and carefully hand buffed to a beautiful satin sheen. Easy to maintain; care instructions included. Handcrafted in Thiers, France.

Handmade goods have cultural significance in almost every subculture and financial class. While the upper class may delight in the exclusivity of a handmade object, the working class may appreciate it for the time and effort that goes into its creation. No matter the reason, one thing is certain – Handmade goods connect us to one another. Crafting an item by hand allows an artist to put their heart and soul into their work, giving each individual piece character and making it truly one-of-a-kind. It also reminds us that our hands can do so much more than just operate machines - They can measure, sculpt, paint, and carve. Our artisans rely on their hands to not only bring their ideas to life, but to provide you with a treasure that is uniquely yours.
