London 10cm + Etui Knife Made of Horn with Brass Anchor

Maritime knives are a world apart, as is seafaring on the whole. What you need in this rough environment is a “companion fidèle”, a true companion, with no frills yet reliable (also cf. MONPELLIER). Its characteristics are the broad blade with a pulled down point and a handle with a perfect grip. With this knife, all the works on board can be dealt with effortlessly. It can be used for cutting ropes, repairing wood, it is used like a cutting knife to tailor sailcloth, and it is even used during meal times. Sometimes, there’s a hole at the end of the handle or a ring in order to be able to attach it to a piece of twine. LONDON’s roots are surmised to be in England. In Brittany, its qualities were quickly discovered and it became the steady companion in the pockets of fishermen, whalers and sailors on their long voyages. But also the land-locked farmers understood its use and versatility so that it soon spread along the entire Northern coast of France.
