- The finishing
It is an operation which requires a very great professional qualification, because it consists in giving to the unfinished knives the best finishing.
For that, it is absolutely necessary to polish all the visible parts of the knife. With various tools of sizes and different forms, the work polish the bolster, the corbin, the chin, the back, as well as the four faces of the handle.
Then lt comes the operation of rayassage which consists in removing all the small stripes of the blade and to give him the final brilliance.
Finally the last operation of manufacture arrives : a grinding stone is used to refine to the maximum the edge of the blade and to give to the knife the best cut.
The knife is thus finished. It then will be wiped, marked on the blade, then packed.
