    • For 36 years, the URCHOEGUIA family has offered all knife enthusiasts a wide range of artisanal and original models.

      The house makes a point of putting local artisans to work, whether for the manufacture of Makhilas Basque jewelry, of course, or even knives.


      THE LARGEST CHOICE OF KNIVES IN THE BASQUE COUNTRY:

      The KASKAROT: the knife of Saint-Jean-de-Luz.

      Created by Dominique Urchoeguia in 2008, the Kaskarot is an original Basque knife with a strong character. Its corsair-style blade and its curved handle in the shape of a fish tail evoke the history of the city and do not leave you indifferent. This knife is exclusive to the La Civette cutlery in Saint Jean de Luz.

      The famous BASQUE YATAGAN

      This is the traditional, historic Basque knife. Comfortable and utilitarian, it is characterized by the inclusion of rivets in its handle as well as a Basque Cross in marquetry. It is also made from scarified medlar wood.

      The cutlery also offers several Basque knife creations that are unique to it:

      • The Xistera, inspired by the famous Basque pelota instrument.
      • The Ozeano, a rustic knife in a two-nail version that evokes the ocean and the Basque coast.
      • And the brand new "Kontrabandista", a tribute to the smugglers of the Basque Country.
      • Basque knives from the Lames de Sames workshop are also represented.


      The store also offers the biggest brands of French knives. Indeed, made in France is in the spotlight. We can thus find Laguioles, Thiers, Mongins, Nontrons or even Opinel. But foreign cutlery is not left out with Victorinox, Pallares, Nino, Mikov or Kai knives. In the Cutlery industry in Saint Jean de Luz, a large place is reserved for artistic cutlers like Manu Laplace, JP Tisseyre (MOF), JC Laforêt, Nicolas Couderc (MOF), Rémi Lavialle, Michel Grini and Koji Hara...

      BASQUE CRAFTS:

      Other artisanal products are available such as the Makhila, a walking and defense stick made from scarified medlar wood.

      Feminine elegance is not forgotten with the Rodon range of Basque jewelry made in the Basque Country and its large selection of pendants, bracelets, rings and earrings.

      All these beautiful objects invite you to bring home a bit of the Basque spirit.
