French pocket knife with a twist: Alsace - Massu Bubinga wood with corkscrew
The Alsace pocket knife, also called Alsacien or Massu, actually comes from the Alsace region on the border with Germany. Thiers is a small town in the Auvergne region of the French Central Massif. Since the Middle Ages her name has been synonymous with outstanding cutting art. 70 percent of all French knives are forged today in the idyllic town of about 12,000 inhabitants. Founded in 1885, the renowned manufacturer Au Nain also markets this elegant version of the Alsace pocket knife with a curved handle.
Vaulted handles made of West African Bubinga heartwood adorn the handle and stand out due to the typical slightly reddish color and fine grain. This hard, durable material is perfect for high quality knives. At the back end of the handle, the corkscrew, which is indispensable for wine lovers, is integrated. The shape of the 1 2C27 stainless steel blade is similar to the classic Yatagan blade.
