    • ANDRÉA CARVALHO & PASCAL EXPOSITO, ART CRAFTSMEN IN THE BASQUE COUNTRY

      Proud of our identity, in love with our land and its traditions, we have created the first Basque knife in medlar. Adorned with this noble wood, which requires long working years, Mizpira carries the mark of our culture and the inheritance of an ancestral Basque knowledge just like the Makila, the ancestral walking stick of our shepherds. Over the years, bustled by the desire to create and innovate, our common passion of cutlery gave birth to our registered trademarks Mizpira, Bixia and Artzaina. Through their materials and original forms, these artistic hand-made knives created in our workshop are an invitation to share our soil and its value…

      Cutlers for more than 30 years, we also propose you services that was formerly made by the great cutleries : cutlery set reconditioning, repasting, change the blades, the handles, polish the precious woods, horns, mother-of-pearls, silverwares, and create custom-made cutlery sets.

      You can find all of our creations and videos of our workshop and know-how on our website : www.couteaux-basques.com

      - Group visits : 5€/person, from 25 persons - detailed explanation of the knives’ manufacture with videos – workshop visible from the shop.

      - Free access for individual or family visits.

    A glass workshop adjoining the store. A beautiful place, friendly saleswoman who knows her subject well. VERY beautiful, expensive pieces made in the workshop (wood or other attached to a Thiers blade). These beautiful knives can be found on the best tables of Basque chefs. We recommend

    On arrival you can watch the craftsmen working through a large bay window. Quality craftsman, we explain the creation of knives as well as the origins of Basque cutlery and others. Many artisanal models and others from outside but exceptional companies. Bravo for this concept which brings the craftsman closer to his customer.
