From our longtime partner in a renowned knife making region of France comes this duo of vintage knives:a curved blade Potato Peeler with a Bubinga handle (known as a Bec d’Oiseaux, or bird’s beak); and a Fruit Knife with Rosewood handle and brass rivets. The Potato Peeler and Fruit Knife have hard-to-find Carbon Steel blades (famed for their sharpness) and are of extremely high quality.

Made decades ago in Thiers, a city in France renowned for its knife making. We were lucky enough to discover a vintage treasure trove of them in beautiful condition while on a recent factory tour with one of our suppliers. Grab these exceptional blades while available (very limited quantities).

Potato Peeler: 6 ½”, Blade 2½”
Fruit Knife: 8 “, Blade 4”

To clean, hand-wash only and immediately wipe dry.

  • Christmas 2018

    Marlene Sebastian, 9/21/2018 I purchased these for my husband for Christmas 2018 as he loves to cook and I couldn't resist the rosewood handles. We both love special wood. since they are wrapped for Christmas, they haven't been tried yet, but Garrett Wade products haven't failed me yet. I am sure they are 5 stars.
  • French fruit knife and return

    Barron Morin, 5/20/2018 Handsome,well-made product. If you don't mind, I'd like to use this forum to praise your company for its handling of my return of a faulty Navaja. Nice work. Classy. I've come to expect no less from GW.
  • Really good fruit knife

    John, 2/3/2018 I bought the fruit knife and I already had the paring knife that I paid way too much for elsewhere.The paring knife is a classic, but after cutting up one apple the fruit knife became an instant favorite. It's a light knife that feels excellent in my hand while I'm chopping up this mango. Blade shape is great for slicing through fruit and the vintage design is so good. I've learned I can implicitly trust old french kitchen things. I've also learned most store importing them mark them up through the cathedral roof.
