Unused vintage stainless butcher's saigner from approximately the the 1950s-60s? with stainless blade and bakelite handle held with brass compression rivets. Old style hand ground forged blade has its original old style fine finish from leather wheel and handle has the original Au Nain sticker. These are a real mid-century time capsule here!

Au Nain is a 4th generation family cutlery business that was founded in 1885 by Gaston Saint-Joanis in Saint-Rémy-sur-Durolle, a district of Thiers. The name 'Au Nain' (meaning The Dwarf) was chosen as a playful response to their main competitor at that time - 'Géant du Couteau' (The Knife Giant).  Much of Au Nain's manufacturing process is still in-house (from handling to polishing and sharpening, etc.) which is becoming less and less common.  They continue to uphold traditional knife making processes characteristic to Thiers. 

New Old Stock, Vintage, and New Vintage knives do not come sharpened. Please request sharpening if desired in the order notes section of the cart page.
