- K Sabatier
For more than 200 years this prestigious brand has been part of the heritage of the Town of Thiers, the capital of the French cutlery industry.
- Some history
In the beginning of the 19th century, two great families began to forge the reputation of SABATIER knives: The "Moutier" Sabatier (lower Thiers) and the "Bellevue" Sabatier (upper Thiers).
Now only one family remains, the "Bellevue" Sabatier, still at the same address. For eight generations, it has been manufacturing top-of-the-range kitchen knives under the corporate name of
ETS Sabatier Aîné & Perrier.
- The beginnings of the K Sabatier brand
In 1834, the "Bellevue" Sabatier added the initial "K" to their name todistinguish themselves from the "Moutier" Sabatier. The "K" is an ancient Thiers mark that can be found in the town archives, engraved on the cutler's Table d'Argent, dated 7 June 1813, number 231.
This mark, with a long-standing reputation for outstanding dependability, still remains the sign of high-quality manufacturing.
- Knives forged from a single piece of metal
All our forged kitchen knives are fully forged from a single piece of metal (blade - bolster - tang) using Z50C13 steel. The manufacturing is done exclusively around Thiers according to the traditional techniques that have made the world reputation of SABATIER AINÉ & PERRIER for more than 200 years.
All our forged knives are signed:
K Sabatier by Sabatier Aîné & Perrier
This is the guarantee of the prestigious past continued by the family tradition for eight generations in Bellevue.
The company already had the label ENTREPRISE DU PATRIMOINE VIVANT. This label has just been renewed in 2017 for a period of 5 years.
Our company is therefore known and recognized nationally for its history, its history, the quality of its products made in FRANCE.
