Care instructions

We recommend wiping the blade by hand with a soft sponge.
Do not leave in prolonged contact with water, a heat source or chemical products.
Avoid strong temperature variations.
Store the knife in its pouch.

Wipe the handle from time to time with a drop of linseed oil or olive oil to restore its shine.

Remove any deposits of material that may slip inside the mechanism and affect the operation of the knife.

Sharpen the edge as soon as the knife seems to cut a little less well.

Feeling from the workshop

Flagship model in the 1970s, Le Pionnier has immediately seduced its public with its “sage leaf” blade, its decorated bolster and its bulging handle which give the knife a style deeply rooted in tradition and transmission.

Le Pionnier was so successful that its name almost replaced that of the Douris Chastel brand!

It is available in 1 piece, 2 pieces and 3 pieces.
