The Paris Classic Pairing Knife from Peugeot is an ergonomically designed knife meant to make peeling fruits, vegetables, and more easier. Made in Thiers, France (also known as the cutlery capital of the world), this Peugeot knife was made with strength, resistance, and flexibility in mind. With a sleek, steel look and lightweight but highly durable blade, this knife will make a great addition to any kitchen.
Instead of softening the whole piece of steel, Peugeot uses a technique called ‘upsetting’. Only the part that will turn into the ricasso will be heated (forged) to preserve the authenticity (hardness, resistance to corrosion) of the steel that will be used for the blade. Once heated and softened, a ball is formed by upsetting, then hit to create the ricasso. The blade is finally cut to its final shape.This unique technique is one of the many reasons why Peugeot products stand out.
The Peugeot adventure started in the 19th century in Thiers, France with a flurry of ingenious code-setting creations. To this day, Peugeot knives set the standards for gourmets and great chefs alike. Since 1850, the lion has epitomized the quality of Peugeot products. Thiers is the world capital of knife-making. With 8 centuries of savoir-faire, this medieval town is perched on a rocky outcrop facing The Chaîne des Puys, a north-south oriented chain of cinder cones, lava domes, and maars in the Massif Central of France. Renowned for its specialty in cutlery, striking architecture, and narrow winding streets, Thiers has become a destination of world tourism.
