The Sauveterre knife was designed by Henri Viallon from a model of a knife from the Aveyron region of the nineteenth century. The distinctive feature of this knife is a leaf-shaped blade reminiscent of a sage leaf and a sage leaf on the nib.
The handle of this elegant knife is a combination of ebony and an inlay with stuccoed beech from the Aubrac region and . The taut back spring is forged. It ends in a guilloche sage leaf. The plates are also handcarved. The blade is made of high-performance 14C28N stainless steel. For easier opening of the knife, the blade is equipped with a nail cut.
The Sauveterre, bears the name of a village in Aveyron where the forge is located.
Founded around 1241, Sauveterre de Rouergue, a medieval village considered one of the most beautiful villages in France, is a beautiful 13th century bastide built around the "Place des Arcades".
