Yes indeed 1 second can make a big difference whether to fend off an assailant or to free someone trapped in a burning car. Police and firemen are my heroes...and that is no joke!

Could not agree more!!! ;)
The definition of insanity is to do the same thing over and over again and expect a different result?

We definitely can't accuse the Leos of having a bad taste ;) . Great pics, guys!

LeoB, have you ever seen one of those Perceval kitchen knives irl? I was wondering was their grind is and how they cut.

Seems to me that I know of yet another member here with the same great taste and more than that, he has visited Thiers and the very place these wonderful knives are crafted. Some Dutch fellow I think you may know eh Mark! ;)

I have not seen them in the flesh I do not know what the grind is I think it would not really matter what; I do know they are popular amongst chefs in Europe and Asia including Japan and their table knives are also popular with some of the top hotels & restaurants.
www.facebook.com/atelierperceval this gives more of an insight into what they are doing.

Cool! I have been trying to convince the restaurant I sharpen for to get Laguiole knives for their guests, but to no avail yet...

They should listen, Laguiole makes excellent knives. I prefer the lines of the Chambriard knives but I think it is a toss up between the two. Philippe Chambriard also makes some excellent cutlery for fine dining and for use in the kitchen. I will try to get some pictures of them to post here.

Here is a link to some of the Chambriard kitchen knives. Check out the last 5 pictures from bread knife to paring knife.

Also a link for both the Laguiole and Chambriard kitchen and dining-room knives and other eating utensils. Leave it to the French to have a wide spectrum of dining tools! :)
