Au Sabot is one of the older knife makers still in existence today. Founded in 1870, Au Sabot came of age in the town of Thieres, France which was the knife making capital of Europe at the time with blacksmiths coming from all over to learn their techniques.
The company is still making knives in that town today and the L’Armor Mariner’s Knife is a beautiful tribute to classical styles with modern craftsmanship and materials. The L’Armor knife was formerly known as The London and it’s their take on a 19th century English knife that was famous for being carried by seaman traveling the seven seas.
It features a sheepsfoot blade that was the mariner’s favorite style of that era and it’s paired with a sleek wooden handle and an inlaid brass marine anchor. The blade is made from a heavy dudy Sandvik 12C27 stainless steel that’s been brushed for a matte look.
The L’Armor Knife comes in three styles, each with a unique handle: Olive Wood, Palo Santo Wood, and Stainless Steel (instead of wood). I’m partial to these classical wood styles but I think the stainless steel version looks clean AF.
The liner-lock security system is in place to protect your fingers and this knife is both lightweight and sleek enough to slip into your pocket anytime for everyday carry.
