The simple Knife
This French classic was invented by Gaspard Cognet as a cheap working and field knife for the French military and the colonies overseas. The folded sheet metal handle and the simple slip joint construction made it very easy and quickly to produce.
It became a big seller and since 1929 it was sold many hundred thousand times. Despite its simple construction it still is a very capable little knife that has become a true French icon.
