Au Nain Boucher Set of 4 Beech Wood Steak Knives with Leather Pouch
This set of four masterfully crafted steak knives comes in a leather knife roll, or travel pouch. Features natural beech wood handle.
Made in a small town of Thiers, France's capital for knife makers, these knives are the product of a booming cutlery-making industry that began in the Middle Ages. Expertly crafted knives are thus no stranger to the region.
In the beginning, Au Nain's main competitor was led by a man of small stature who called himself "The Giant of Knifemaking." The name "Au Nain" was born as a humorous response to this, translating as "to the dwarf" or "to the gnome." Their logo of the gnome, shown on the blade, remains to this day.
