Is that a picture of Jean Sabatier, the supposed founder of the cutlery company, or Auguste Sabatier, the theological scholar?

Also, what did Jean Auguste Sabatier supposedly do? Did he create the profiles, or was he a prolific knifemaker, or what?

At the top of the page is the word 'Messemaker', which can be broadly translated as 'Cutler'.

The original engraving of this image was created by the Dutch artist, Jan Luyken (1649-1712). It was published in Luyken's 1694 publication 'Het Menselyk Bedryf' ('The Book of Trades'). Jan Luyken compiled this book with his son, Caspar (1672-1708). It included engravings of a range of trades including cutlers, spectacle makers, confectioners and silversmiths

You should get all those old knife images, sketches, and such amassed into a single thread, and get the admins to "sticky" it. All in one place, would make a cool resource!

Either that or write a book!!

That's kind of what I am trying to do with files on my computer and then share what i find with you guys and what Dave has provided a place for all the findings
good for forum members to find a markers mark or history or just a cool image .

LAGUIOLE

Some would say this is the most well known maker from France but i think OPINEL would give them a run for there money.

I agree with the statement about Opinel; I've been buying them since 1978, and have one I bought for my dad back then, a #8. A juniper handled Chateau Laguiole corkscrew (http://www.customcurling.com/proddetail.asp?prod=chateau_laguiole_corkscrew_jun iper_3012V) is on my wish list too.

couperet de boucher!!!......now i know what to call my HUGE cleaver i got from france,,.....i bout it on ebay years ago from france and never saw another.....well till i bought the second one i saw on ebay!.......there is a weird notch on the handle....i still wonder what it is for....any ideas steely?......did u see any pics of them with a notch at the handle?.....ryan

Hi Ryan
the Couperet de Bouchers or Coupernet Boucher Tallanderie
is still being made by DEGLON France .
I would think since it's for going through the bone or head, when you pull that thing above your head the notch or handle design is so it doesn't fly out of your hand .

so the one by DEGLON first.
