Our specialty: Personalize your knife (first name, initials, date...) with a beautiful engraving of the spring produced by a professional engraver. The engraving is performed before the file work (guillochage) and the heat treatment.

Hand chiseled and forged spring

Hand chiseled and forged spring

The bee is solid and forged into the spring. The spring and bee are then hand-chased with a file : This denotes artisan quality, unlike inexpensive mass market products that have welded springs and are machine decorated.

The Damascus steel we’re using is from Damasteel® and the patterns will last the life of the knife.

Corsica is a real land of knives since antiquity and the Corsican cutlery industry has become a real tradition. 

There is no such thing as a "Corsican knife" but "Corsican knives"! 

Like many farming areas, the Corsican knife was first and foremost a tool used by farmers for their daily work. 

Since then, Corsican knives have followed their history with new models that combine tradition and modernity.
