Awesome pictures. Here are mine.
I went to get my one and only to photograph and proudly display. GONE :grumpy: I started looking every where and got the "stop tearing up everything in the house for a stupid knife" from my wife so I put everything back in it's place and stopped the search until Monday when she goes to work then at first light I will resume the search and rescue mission. Seriously though it's bad enough to lose a knife but how in the world do you lose a knife you never carry and inside your own house to boot. Good news is I bought it off of that South American River site for I think around $50 so it will be easily replaced but this is going to drive me nuts until I figure out WHAT I DID WITH IT. Now this has got me wondering what else is missing.
My three. 11cm ebony, 9cm snakewood, and 7cm horn.
My latest laguiole !!! (Joker)
That blade's sitting a little proud, I think...
Yeh.just a bit😀.Iwas on holiday and the first thing ime looking for is a knife shop.Found this one in the old town of estapona on the Spanish mainland.Going back there soon for another gander .see what's there this time.who knows.😎
Wow. Just wow. I need more of these. Foolcher, great collection!!! addylo, very nice snakewood.
Here is a recent purchase. Picked it up when I randomly walked by the shop in Paris with my wife. It's the only shop in the city where my wife had to wait for me! I almost ruined her schedule for the day since it was an unplanned stop. More than the looks, I love the smell of the juniper wood when I open the drawer where I keep the laguioles.
So many nice examples, folks! :thumbup::thumbup:
I hesitate to show my only Laguiole, because I think it's a Chinese knock-off that I bought in Denia, Spain. But it's associated with lots of wonderful memories for me (I was in Spain visiting my daughter), and it's really quite a pleasant knife, despite being very inexpensive.
Apples just taste better when I use this knife.
Nice shot! :thumbup:
That's a beauty, Shamshir. Who made it?
Vent d'Aubrac makes upmaket knives, it has been founded by two MOF (meilleur ouvrier de France - France best craftsman) and their knives are flawless, but quite expensive. They have a website at the same name.
I got this a few months before Vent d'Aubrac rebranded themselves as a more upscale brand. Back then they some more "affordable" line ups. If you visit their site now, you won't find anything as simple as my knife anymore.
I was under the impression that the shop was owned by Michel Frayssou. At least that's what it looked like based on their old website. But then once the two MOFs won their awards last summer, they recast/rebranded themselves. Now there is no mention of M. Frayssou on the site. All of this is conjecture by me though, not quite sure about the exact details. Any details to feed my curiosity would be appreciated.
But my gosh! All of their new creations are pure gems! They seem to really love the chisel work.
Redeagle, nice burls. As for the juniper smell... ooohhh yeah!
