Luxury cutlery embodying French regional history

The history of our French pocketknife

Authentic knives handcrafted in Aveyron

The Liadou® pocketknife was created for use inthe vineyards in Marcillac, France. In fact, Liadou® means “binding or tying tool” in Occitan as this knife was used to split grapevine canes in order to tie them to wood stakes. This famous pocketknife is distinguishable thanks to its exceptional razor-shape blade that has a signature downward pointing tip as well as its ergonomic handle. A winegrower in the Aveyron region wouldn’t be caught out in the vineyards without their trusty pocketknife. The modern day Liadou® was awarded the “Fabriqué en Aveyron” label for perpetuating the region’s traditions and craftsmanship. Each of our one-of-a-kind knives is handcrafted in our Marcillac-based artisanal workshop.
