An authentic winegrower's knife
made in the highest cutlery tradition

Le Liadou tells the story of a knife that Marcillac winegrowers used in the past to split the wicker and bind the vines into a crown.
The liadou , “ binding tool ” in Occitan, was a folding knife, solid and reliable, with a wide blade pointing downwards and a firm and nervous flat spring.
Disappeared in the middle of the 20th century with the advent of wire trellising, Liadou is today reborn with force, reflecting the whole soul of its terroir.
Discover it today through 6 collections made by hand in our workshop in Marcillac (Aveyron - France) according to the highest Aveyron cutlery tradition.
