The London: a sailors' knife.
Inspired by the English "Sailor's rope knife" or "Sway back jack" knives, it was around 1850 that this knife appeared in France and was named "Le London". Also called "Terre-Neuvas" or "Gabier", its name alone evokes the harshness of the work of the sea, the morning or evening departures at the tide for distant races and uncertain horizons.
The knife of the convicts of the sea, the stylet (or houndstooth) shape of its blade and its robustness made it possible to cut ropes with a sharp blow, sometimes with the help of a mallet. The usual urgency of the situation made an efficient, functional and reliable tool indispensable.
The rounded shape of the blade was the only one allowed to avoid any serious injury, whether accidental or as a result of the brawls that could break out due to the promiscuity and the endless stays at sea.
This pocket knife is a bit of the ocean in our daily life.
