Manu Laplace, not just a cutler, but an artist who lives his dream.
In 2001 Manu Laplace began to combine tradition, craftsmanship, art and passion and created the legendary 1515® knife.
The concept: tied to the Nordic form, in always identical construction, Manu Laplace lets his creative power and creativity flow into an infinite number of unique variations. Each knife is unique and highly recognizable.
In the meantime, the artist and his brand 1515® have become a valued brand and a must-have among lovers and collectors worldwide.
Custom 1515 - Mod. 3/4 limited series handle mammoth ivory 20,000 years old - blade Vegas Forge (Nevada) - Damascus bolsters (Achim Wirtz).
This fine 1515 knife, limited to four models, has handle scales made of blue mammoth crust, age about 20,000 years. In this custom 1515, Manu Laplace combines two outstanding damask forges. This is a stainless, hand-forged blade from the forge VEGAS FORGE Nevada with 300 layers. VEGAS FORGE is known for the finest Damascus steel and beautiful Damascus patterns. The blade was worked out in Scandinavian style.
The mosaic damascus of the bolsters and the inlay of the spacer was made by the "damascus pope" Achim Wirtz from Germany.
The plates of the 1515 have been given a fine hammered guillochage. The knife feels excellent in the hand. It has an impressive quality feel and is perfectly finished in all areas. The linerlock works precisely. Haptically and visually, every 1515 is a delight.
