    What brought me to this post is i found there catalog from 1890.
    besides all things copper and all types of molds . There is only one page with knives
    which is understandable when a cook could just walk any number of knife shop in the city at that time.

    Just to add a knife shop but what is of interest is the women is a Remouleur (knife grinder )
    kind of unheard of at that time.

    Really Really awesome post steeley!
    I like the press thingy. I wonder what it is for.
    I like seeing the current knives too. One of them looks kinda like a CCK cleaver I've seen or maybe even a Gude I've seen before too.
    Love the history. I'm a history knerd!

    I made a pilgrimage there a 4-5 years ago and would recommend it to be a stop if anyone is planning on going to Paris in the future.

    Great post. And that is a very cool shop to visit. I was there a little over a year ago, but didn't have room to bring back anything (but now I wish I had).

    Of course, now they do have a lot of sabatier-style knives lined up in boxes (they look pretty cheap), and the amount of food-forming tin things was bewildering. I liked the downstairs with all the big pans and roasting pans.

    As for the duck press, Bourdain picked up a duck press on one of his Layover episodes. They apparently put all the bones and stuff leftover after taking the meat off a duck, put it in the cylinder, and press. The press extracts all the juices from everything that is leftover and it is used in a sauce.

    It's one of the coolest stores EVER! My wife was there a bit over a year ago, and she asked specifically about Nogents. They had none, didn't want to discuss them, and pointed her at the drawers and boxes full of knives that were Sab style. She said they seemed cheap and didn't get one for me, because the prices just didn't make sense. Unfortunately, I agreed with her when she told me this, and I peeked at their newest catalogue.
