Nobles pocket knife: Midi-Pyrénées - Aveyronnais horn red carbon
Like all of our pocket knives, this distinctly designed Aveyronnais is forged in Thiers, a stronghold of the French art of knives for 500 years. The Aveyronnais is the brother of the widespread in France Laguiole, but in a greatly reduced equipment. On attachments such as corkscrew is deliberately omitted, as well as the Laguiole typical "bee" or "fly", remnants of an old locking system.
Sometimes the Aveyronnais is also referred to as "Laguiole des Pauvres" (knife for the poor), others love this purist variant due to the no frills design and call it the "true Laguiole". The curved, narrowing handle makes the Aveyronnais handy and easy to stow. The rounded handles of regional horn have a particularly beautiful, slightly reddish color, smooth polished with a natural structure.
The blade is made of carbon steel with curved back and tapered cutting edge in the smithy "Laguiole gastronome" in Thiers. This blade is traditionally typical of the Aveyronnais. Their advantages include higher cutting performance and stable cutting edge. With careful care, knives with carbon steel blades last a lifetime. Over time, they get a solid patina. As a care product, a food grade blade oil is recommended.
