COUTELLERIE AU SABOT
150 years of know-how
Au Sabot cutlery, one of the oldest brands of French cutlery.
Founded in 1870, Au Sabot is one of the oldest cutleries in France. Known for its regional knives and folding knives, Au Sabot also produces an original range of table and kitchen knives. 100% French, Au Sabot knives are renowned for their cutting quality and durability.
Making a knife is a complex process that requires a real teamwork with complementary know-how. Each knife manufactured in the Au Sabot cutlery workshop benefits from constant attention by each experienced and qualified member of the team who share the same love of the craft. Entirely manufactured in the heart of its workshops in Thiers, no less than 80 steps are necessary, depending on the model, to manufacture a knife. Some of them require the help of machines, laser cutting in particular, but most of them are entirely handmade. Au Sabot knives are the reflection of a cutlery tradition passed down from generation to generation and constantly updated to keep up with contemporary trends and uses.
The company has been certified as a "Living Heritage Company", a label awarded to French companies with excellent craftsmanship and industrial know-how, and its knives are distributed throughout France by numerous specialized retailers.
