Exquisite detail, the finest materials, flawless craftsmanship, and superlative designs that transcend the best traditions of the Golden Age of French cutlery are all incorporated in the handcrafted knives of Mongin. Located in Biesles (Nogent), France, this small shop of artisans painstakingly create the edged works of art designed by master cutler, Jacques Mongin. The winner of the prestigious MOF (Meilleurs Ouvriers de France - Best Craftsmen of France) award in 1965, Jacques has recently retired, but his son, Daniel Margaux, has taken over and maintains this cutlery icon’s legacy.
