Giraffe Bone Polished Blade
The blade has a counter cutting edge called 'Nogentais' and a polished finish. As for the sleek spacer, one can admire a white mother-of-pearl dovetail insert, like a gem set in the spirit of a cufflink.
The handle also has a mother-of-pearl inlay with studs like luxury cutlery at the turn of the century. It has a literary and poetic side because the inside of the knife receives an engraving concerning a quote from Victor Hugo.
A fifth-generation knife maker, Manu LaPlace's 1515 line of liner-lock pocket knives are handcrafted in Thiers, France. The handle is made of polished giraffe bone with mother-of-pearl inlay on both sides. 8.5 cm blade.
