Chambriard - Thiers

Cutlery from father to son since the end of the 19th century, the CHAMBRIARD cutlery embarked on the adventure of "Le Thiers ®" in 1998 with models that stand out for their forged spring heads receiving the emblematic "T".

The history of Chambriard cutlery

The Chambriard house is an institution of French cutlery.

The origin of the activity

From the 19th century, the Chambriard family had a forging activity in the vicinity of Thiers. It is in this Thiernoise mountain where the peasants became knife editors as soon as the sun went down that the Chambriard family wove their activity and knew how to develop during several generations

The different generations

After the first generation, it was the turn of Jules Chambriard, then André Chambraird, Georges Chambriard and finally the Chambriard sons - Philippe and Dominique - to develop the business, and the various cutlery activities of the family.

The post-war generations specialized in the manufacture of so-called monobloc table knives. This model was very fashionable after the Second World War.

In the 80s, Georges Chambriard and his wife Marie Jo, while continuing the activity of manufacturer, bought a cutlery store in the city center of Thiers. Currently, it is the whole family of Georges who work there: 3 generations serving the beautiful cutlery of THIERS.

Positioning and know-how

The Chambriard sons - Philippe and Dominique - through the Thiers boutique, the very close links they have with the best craftsmen in their region and the creation of the Le Thiers ® knife brotherhood wanted to concentrate their activity by making pocket knives and table knives under the brand LE THIERS PAR CHAMBRIARD.

Their positioning is very high-end. The choice of steel, the selection of materials and the manufacturing are essential for their Le Thiers ® knife.
The Le Thiers ® pocket knife by Chambriard is very pure, sober and absolutely effective.

The table knife is very modern in its line and very traditional due to its manufacture, its guilloche and the wood species used.

Types of knives

Each pocket model has a name. The flagship model - traditional size - is called the companion. The one with a corkscrew is called the Grand Cru. The smaller model for women or to slip into a backpack is the compact.

The trapper will be for hunters or explorers of all kinds, as well as the Grand Cru Trapper.

The latest creation from Chambriard is the Marie Jo in memory of their dear mother who was an absolutely adorable and extremely kind woman.

Particularity of the knives

The Chambriard are real cutlers whose origins date back to the 19th century. Their production can only recall what our ancestors made. The knives therefore all have a spring system. Our manufacturing modernization, new materials and new steels allow them to manufacture extremely efficient Le Thiers ® pocket knives.

When you have a Chambriard knife in your pocket, you have a real knife.
