Au Nain Steak Knives in Leather Pouch (Set of 4)
This set of 4 masterfully crafted steak knives have beech wood handles and comes in a leather knife roll.
Made in a small town of Thiers, France's capital for knifemakers, these knives are a 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 of these knives, remains to this day.
