CLAUDE DOZORME + BRILLIANT DESIGNERS
Signature series | T. Bastide
A revolution at the heart of the French cutlery traditions, renowned French Designer Thomas Basted and Master Cutler Claude Dozorme associated their talent to create L'Ame, the Soul in French. With its unique asymmetric handle, it pays tribute to Thiers, which is both France capital of cutlery, and a knife shape like Laguiole, its twin brother, is.
The soul of a knife lies in his blade. Starting from this postulate, T. Bastide magnified this blade by undressing it from one side of the knife. Thus naked, the knife reveals its one piece conception (full tang knife) in the pure tradition of genuine Thiers & Laguiole knives (mainly produced in Thiers actually). The blade reveals itself in splendor and sobriety. It plays its appearances with its asymmetrical handle which allows it to hold in balance on the right side and thus does not touch the tablecloth, a superb tenure effect on the table and very hygienic.
The other side of the handle, made of Bakelite (an acrylic), is thick and polished in a special angle way to provide both a maximum balance to the knife and surprisingly an extremely comfortable handling.
The Designer ~ Thomas Bastide is the renown French resident designer for the prestigious crystal workshops Baccarat, and creates regularly acclaimed objects many other luxury workshops such as Hermes and Christofle. Claude Dozorme cutlery first approached T. Bastide to revisit the traditional Thiers steak knife, the twin brother of Laguiole. A rich and successful partnership between the historic French cutlery workshop and the talented designer having already launched 4 collections together: FlatCut, Thiers Shadow, Thiers L'Ame & Thiers L'Ame Luxe.
Claude Dozorme cutlery ~ At heart of Thiers, France and Europe capital of cutlery, the Dozorme family of Master cutlers were already the first to innovate in the early 1900's by transforming the famous Laguiole knife, a folding knife only at that time, into the famous table knife, fixed blade, found on the best tables around the world nowadays.
