Musée de la Coutellerie (and workshops)

Interesting
Thiers' knives need no introduction. The manufacturing process, passed down from generation to generation, comprises several stages, including cutting, heat-treating and sharpening the blade, shaping and assembling the handle, carving, engraving and polishing. Housed over two sites, the Musée de la Coutellerie has workshops as well as the museum.
