Beautiful knives! I know practically nothing about French cutlery, you have piqued my interest.

Ike, that is a knife I bought from ebay some time ago just because it was so funky and still in good shape.
Ivory covers with birds head pins and springs from hell.
Lightly pitted but pitted all over. The saw is still quite sharp as is the awl.
I'm glad you find it interesting. ::tu::
