Sleek and balanced: Auvergne - Yssingeaux Horn

The Yssingeaux from Auvergne is considered the most traditional pocket knife in France. It is also an ancestor of many today common cutting tools for the trouser pocket, z. B. of Saint-Martin, Laguiole or Roquefort.

From the 18th century it was the knife of the ranchers and farmers in the French central massif. Over time, it was replaced by other knife forms and stepped slightly into the background. Then several manufacturers discovered it again and took it on. These include Thiers-based cutlers.

Typical feature is the Bourbonnais blade with the centered tip. Their shape was developed from that of the sage leaf. The straight handle with the bent end, also called Rabenschnabel, is another distinguishing feature. The domed handles are attached to the boards with brass rivets, the material is classic horn from the region. The striking logo of the famous cutlery Au Nain adorns the blade made of stainless 12C27 steel.
