The Alpine knife: A companion for mountain people.
The origin of this knife is uncertain, but it seems to have been inspired by Italian knives that appeared around 1860 in Piedmont.
Made exclusively in France, in Thiers since 1905, the Alpin knife has conquered the snowy summits, but also the hearts of mountain people and lovers of simple, robust and efficient knives.
Sober and perfectly functional, the Alpin knife has carved and chiselled quantities of canes, butter moulds and hay rakes in the high mountain pastures of France, Italy and Switzerland.
Incalculable quantities of mushrooms, ceps, chanterelles or morels picked with his blade on Savoyard hillsides and in Alpine undergrowth!
Like the mountain people of the Alps, assemble your own Alpine pocket knife and set out to gather the treasures of the forests of Pen-y-ghent, Scafell, Feldberg, Triberg im Schwarzwald or Alderängarna.
Always in your pocket, it was, and still is, a faithful companion for a midday snack in the middle of a mountain run or a gourmet break on the go in town.
