    • It was while building his collection of regional French knives that Christophe discovered and unearthed from the past a beautiful traditional Basque cutlery that had been forgotten.

      The knives thus found are dated between the 12th century and the 20th century.

      Christophe and Séverine Lauduique consider themselves to be “discoverers” of cutlery treasures and “transmitters” of history.

      Thus, thanks to their know-how, they put REAL Basque knives back into circulation. Heritage and territorial.

      This is the bias of their workshop: to remanufacture and revive old Basque knives, found engraved or drawn on paper archives.

      The Couteau Basque boutique workshop notably manufactures pocket knives which use the system of Pyrenean friction folding knives (with “two nails”) used in the past by peasants and shepherds and dating from the 12th century.

      The Couteau Basque team respects tradition and quality by shaping handles in wood or horn and by manufacturing blades in XC75 carbon steel, 12C27 stainless steel, forged damascus and stainless steel damascus as well as suminagashi, also known as “sandwich” steel (or VG10).
      The sleeves are engraved with different symbols of Labourd, Basse-Navarre and Soule (which are the three provinces of the northern Basque Country).

      Christophe and Séverine invite visitors interested in their work to possibly choose the handle and blade of their future knife as well as the engraving which will personalize this unique and heritage object . And this at no extra cost!

      The Couteau Basque cutlery will welcome you from Monday to Friday, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.

    Brilliant shop close to the river. A great selection of knives which are hand made. You can feel the passion and love in making these masterpieces. The owner is a “compagnon” which means the highest quality and whatever he does not produce is made by other fellow “compagnons” so the quality is assured. Madame is very friendly and helpful with advice.

    I have bought 3 very nice Couteaux de berger for me and 2 friends. Christophe made them specifically for us and they are truly beautiful and of a fantastic quality. Christophe is still a great and traditional craftsman and anybody looking for good knives should pay him a visit!
