La Croix Saint Martin - Arconsat

Knives countries the Arconsat. Art knives of international renown. Child in the country, after twenty years in the Navy, I returned to settle down in the house of my grandparents in the small village of arconsat hanging on the slopes just black wood. I tried to cutlery because it corresponded to the control that I have the fit, the more my grandfather was already cutler into the 50s when I emerged to Thiers. By meeting Michele, from the north of France, I discovered that I could become sedentary and devote myself to what was basically my future : cutlery… At first I was in the service of others as editors knives at home, then we created our cutlery Laforet cutlers 2005.
