Pocketknife in an elegant look from Thiers: Alsace - Massu Horn
The Massu, also known as Alsacia, is based in its form on a traditional template from Alsace. From time immemorial, the Alsatians and Lothringer knives of this type in almost all situations.
The round handles made of polished, shiny horn captivate with decorative gradations and shades between light and dark blue. Horn from regional cattle has been a readily available, readily processed raw material over the centuries and has been widely used. Many cutleries still resort to pocket knives today. Stainless steel cheeks complete the overall picture of the Alsace - Massu Horn.
On the stainless steel blade 12C27 emblazoned the Au Nain logo. The name (Au Nain) was chosen by the founder of the smithy to distinguish himself from a competitor who called himself a "giant" in the industry. The self-styled "giant" is now history, the alleged dwarf, however, has survived successfully.
