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

The Yssingeaux knife was born in Auvergne late 18th century and was the first knife with a a corbin shaped handle,  it was then replicated by many other regional knives: "Laguiole droit" and "Issoire" for example. Another distinctive feature of the Yssingeaux knife is its "bourbonnaise" blade with a centered tip.

Yssingeaux, pronunciation “ I – SIN – JO”  in the local dialect : SIN means five while JO means cockerel, is a small town in our Auvergne region.
