Boxwood pocket knife – Passion France
“POISSON CULOT BU”

Recently I had the chance to have a closer look at the Passion France knife collection. A real nightmare to narrow down your first choice with so many options. Be prepared to buy at least one and leave with at least one (which you did not buy now) on your wish list.

So the one I choose was the “Poisson Culut Bu” which can be obtained here.

This Laguiole knife with a box wood handle (buchbaum) has the traditional salvia/sage shaped blade. I love the elegant, newer design of the Laguiole blades but I went for this knife for a more rugged looking one. The box wood looks a bit like ivory. After I bought it Wolfgang told me it´s a traditional sailors knife by its design. The steel plate at the end of the handle serves as a tobacco / pipe tamper, which is a nice feature. (however its a bit too big for my Missouri Meerschaum Corn Cob pipe).

The leather sheat wasn´t an option for me at first look be-cause I think a knife should be able to withstand the abuse made by other contents in a trouser pocket. BUT if you see and touch this nicely leather sheats hand made in France – not buying it wasn´t an option anymore.

Thanks Sabine and Wolfgang for this, to say in in Eric´s words a life time gear.

Hubertus Connoisseur pocket knife:
Another great addition to my knife collection. The Hubertus pocket knife has no special product name but I would name it Connoisseur or Gentleman knife. It got all the essencial tools to “survive”. A knife blade, a fork, a corkscrew and a cap opener. No need for a tin opener – who want´s to eat out of tin/cans, anyway. You can argue that “who needs a fork” (use the tip of the blade) or “who needs a cap opener” us the back of the blade but that is why it´s the gentleman knife. It got style, I hope its owners too. The locking mechanism of both parts is very clever and well/solid designed. By opening the fork you unlock both parts. Very nice in design, the brass parts look great with the steel and the black bakelit. There is are also antler or wooden versions of this knife. Thanks David for this nice gift – travel save!

Im glad last weekend Manfred from Feinschmuck gave me an article in the newspaper to read about Robert Kaufmann. At his website, about the first words you read “Die schönsten Messer der Welt” (the most beautiful knifes of the world). That´s a ambitious statement and I think it is true. Unfortunately I could not visit him by now but I definitely have to see him for a chat, to see his knifes / works, take some photos and even ask him to craft a knife for me. The most difficult task is to just choose – only one knife.

Here a video about Robert Kaufmann in german.
