Bringing this old knife back to life: a territorial project...

Sober, robust and elegant: The Liadou®, a forgotten tool
Formerly the inseparable companion of hundreds of winegrowers, it was subsequently abandoned in favor of more modern techniques, pushed back to the bottom of the drawer, of our collective memories for more than half a century and we almost lost all trace of it. and the memory of his name.
Here we present to you an old Liadou ® , witness to the winemaking history of our region. This knife dating from the 1920s, like most Liadou ®, has been used a lot and the wear on its blade marked "Bec à Rodez – Laguiole" bears witness to this. Similarly, its handle has a "scar" due to the repeated rubbing of the wicker on the horn. The brass rosette is present to reinforce the axis of the blade.
Reviving this authentic winegrower's knife, emblematic of the Vallon de Marcillac is our pride.
