Les mîtres


Thiers, capital of knives. Where the museum of cutlery show a collection of knives with very different appearances, oscillating from tool and jewelry.
Among them, the Vendetta model. Elegant knife decorated with a particularly long miter. Which can be explained by its fine line that weakens it. The Vendetta, impostor model. Product of tourism implanted in Corsica by the thiernois. He takes the forms of Corsican stylus, but into a folding knife.

It is for these reasons that I decided to play with the lines of this model. By breaking the original design to rebuild it, and changed the general shape of the knife without losing its identity. The five selected pieces are obviously related to the Vendetta with a surrealist tune.
