LAGUIOLE & THIERS KNIVES by PassionFrance®

2 new knives join my knife collection. Again 2 knives from my friends @ PassionFrance®. I am not a big fan of LAGUIOLE knives but when I saw this piece made with an INOX handle I knew it was a must-have. I like the cold and square-edged grip of this cool and clean knife a lot. Take a look at the smart ornaments, clear lines. It is about 11cm long when it is closed with a welded bee. The Sandwik blade is rust free. For more information please check the PassionFrance® site – there is too much to say about LAGUIOLE … The second knife i had to have is this wonderful THIERS liner-lock with a handle made of buckhorn. The absolute opposite to the INOX handle: a nature textured grip – organic. The THIERS is very clean done too: pure clear lines, no needles bric-a-brac, and easy to handle. I love it!

DOUK-DOUK CHROMATIQUE | CLASSIC FRENCH-MADE POCKET KNIFE IN PURE RED

got this wonderful red colored DOUK-DOUK from volls.de – KLAUS sells PASSION FRANCE now. and for sure i did not know since yesterday that this french classic knife is available in a wonderful rich enamel red – a must-have-item. and the best i got it as a present from KLAUS … thx buddy! formerly the DOUK-DOUK was designed to be sold in french colonies. the engraving on the handle of this knives depict a “DOUK-DOUK”, a native mythological character. my red DOUK-DOUK shows “THE SORCIER” (the sorcerer). the knife is still made from stainless steel in france, its blade is a “turkish clip” contour and its handle is folded steel-metal. it has very slim proportions so that you can put in any pocket. beside, DOUK-DOUK is the preferred knife of the FRENCH FOREIGN LEGION. for much more information please check douk-douk.com . my DOUK-DOUK is kept by a OBBI GOOD LABEL MTC wallet chain – love this. its great when you can put a knife to your pant this way. the red DOUK-DOUK CHROMATIQUE is delivered in a red soft leather slip case so that you could put it to your belt. a steel honing rod is included too.  … pics | LTG




LTG – REACHING THE NEXT LEVEL IN SHAVING WITH A KNIFE

my mum, dad and my brother’s family gave me this japanese shaving razor as a present to my birthday in january. since years i shave my beard with a knife, but the one i used was a soft and very light version from TONDEO – check my post about shaving some weeks ago. my new knife is a shaving razor with changeable blades, too, but much heavier and bigger in comparison to the TONDEO COMFORT CUT. really similar to a traditional shaving razor. it is a FEATHER SHAVING RAZOR ARTIST CLUB DX knife, made in japan, and it is offered by NASSRASUR.com . it works so perfect. much better and less difficult in use than the light TONDEO razor. no cuts, no hurts, just smooth in use and easy to handle. i think after using this knife a while i will try someday a classic one which has no changeable blades – i am sure i will do! pics | LTG
