Thread: French Cutlery

    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?

    Now a film about THEIRS France and the sites of knife making.
    No talking during the film.

    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 .
