CLAUDE DOZORME + BRILLIANT DESIGNERS
Signature series | T. Bastide
After the success of L'Ame steak knives, and the revolution at the heart of the French cutlery traditions the first asymmetric Thiers knife created, renowned French Designer Thomas Basted and Master Cutler Claude Dozorme launched the "Shadow", dressing this time the naked side of the L'Ame knife with thin polished bakelite layer colored in total contrast with the other side of the handle. And the result is simply splendid! Its keeps the unique principle of an asymmetric handle. A new to tribute to Thiers, which is both France capital of cutlery, and a knife shape like Laguiole, its twin brother, is.
Its one piece conception (full tang knife) is in the pure tradition of genuine Thiers & Laguiole knives (mainly produced in Thiers actually). The blade reveals itself in splendor and sobriety while the asymmetrical handle 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 contrasted colors of the handle really bring something special to the table, chic, elegant, modern. You can mix them as you wish for an even more surprising effect: thin white / thick black + thick white / thin black for example.
