Marcillac vineyards: the Liadou® pocketknife’s place of origin

A true gem and an emblem of the Aveyron region

An exquisite blade

A Liadou® is easily recognizable due to its large signature blade that has a subtly downward pointing silhouette, as well as its particularly ergonomic handle. The Liadou ® knife originated in the vineyards of the Marcillac region in France. This handy tool quickly gained traction as the knife of choice among winegrowers - it was used for working in the vineyard, for eating during work breaks and even for domestic chores. This French pocketknife became renowned for its unparalleled, reliable and durable features, specifically its excellent cutting capacity and slip joint system that snaps the blade into place with authority. Liadou’s Tire-bouchon® sommelier knife pays homage to the Aveyron region’s history with a bold interpretation of a timeless design that brings it back to its roots in the vineyard with the addition of a corkscrew.
