Handles are available in Red or Green Stamina (tinted beech wood impregnated with epoxy) or White Micarta (linen impregnated with epoxy) pressed under high pressure to increase stamina and resistance.

These hand-forged 4 Star cutlery and utensils are simply the best investment you will ever make! The finest kitchen knife you will ever own is Sabatier!

Historic knives prove their mettle!

Louise Apron SquareThiers-Issard Sabatier****Elephant Knives have been the choice of Bon Vivant School of Cooking for over 30 years. These hand-forged knives are the standard by which all other cutlery is judged.

Our long running relationship with Thiers Issard has allowed us to introduce our students (and the rest of America) to theses fine products and has led to the development of our signature Bon Vivant knife.

Local Seattle chefs love their Sabatier knives and our cooking students have delighted in getting an edge on their skills using these exceptional culinary instruments.
