    Thank you! All I did is open a book. ;):) BTW Aurillac is the second coldest place in France. :(

    @waynorth Unwillingly you invented a word that sums it up perfectly: un joyau (gem) de Joyeux :thumbsup::D

    @waynorth - Your knife appears to be a recreation of the original rounded style with homage paid to the rosettes of the earlier knives. (the small brass washers are much smaller than rosettes of the past). It's a beautifully executed work.

    Yes, but you can read that book - I can't. Funny, it's exactly the same temperature in Aurillac right now as it is here in Elgin, Illinois.

    Traditional French, you say? This one showed up yesterday... my new Jerome Latreille laguiole. Ebony wood, it looks like a fairly normal lag.... 'til you turn it over and discover that @Âchillepattada is correct..... this young man is an artist. I included a comparison pic beside a GEC 12, to give an indication of the size of this one...
