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!

TUSCAN HUNTING VEST by GRP

A while ago I went with my family to MANUFACTUM, Frankfurt/Main as we often do on Saturdays. It’s great to have breakfast there … such kind service, best selfmade food and a great view to the “Alte Oper” (opera) Frankfurt. After breakfast we walk around looking about. Just nice. So I found this nice Tuscan Hunting Vest by Italian manufacture GRP which I mostly know for their well done knitted fabrics. Saw this vest … had to take it with me. I love this style, this large curved pockets. Nice to wear with its 100% chambray cotton lining. It is made of cotton, has 2 front pockets, 1 small breast pocket and a large back pocket as usual for hunting vests. Really practicable: 2 inside pockets with zippers. The buttons are made of horn – very nice. The vest isn’t too heavy, nearly smooth. You can get it directly from MANUFACTUM’s online store. pics | LTG
