Sale to private individuals and professionals

Founded in 1990, the company was originally specialised in crafting knife handles out of horn for LAGUIOLE knives.

It has since then widened its activity to work with other materials (bone and precious wood), which has enabled it to diversify its range and to offer other items: razor handles, shaving brush handles, fashion accessories (buttons, belt buckles) and instrument accessories (plectrum, etc.).


The company is one of the last still remaining that is skilled in making items out of horn: preparation of parts, shaping, milling, bending, piercing, etc.


Its clientele consists exclusively of companies, particularly knife manufacturers, including several EPV companies: Fontenille-Pataud, Forges de Laguiole, Atelier Perceval, etc.
