Extensive experience and a long-standing tradition in the industry are needed to recognize the little details that will improve a knife that is already perfect at first glance. Few companies have these characteristics more so than Coutellerie Du Roi. Having its origins from a steel factory in Namur, Coutellerie Du Roi - founded in 1750 - is the oldest steel goods business in Brussels. When the mundane "Passage du Nord" was built in 1881, the company relocated to its present facility. Managed by Anne Cielen, now already in its third generation, the goods are stacked to the ceiling in black-coated cartons in the small boutique. In old tradition, each carton has a sample of its contents attached to the front face with a rubber band. Shop visitors will primarily find an extensive selection of Europe's finest pocket knives. In addition, many chefs of the Brussels restaurant scene also procure their tools from here. It is hardly worth mentioning that all other standards that a worthy retailer needs are also readily available. Every customer is greeted with a charming smile. Anne Cielen can assist with four different languages for a friendly, competent, yet patient consultation among the big city hustle and bustle.
The CDC Boker Titan II was selected as a classic among modern pocket knives. The extremely low profile design and the lightweight titanium grip result in a weight of just 31 grams, making the CDC Coutellerie Du Roi into a pleasant and hardly noticeable daily companion that is characterized by sheer incredible carrying comfort. A lanyard hole, specifically introduced for the CDC, allows the knife to be attached to a keychain, on a chain, or a light wrist strap. The special flair of the CDC Coutellerie Du Roi is the result of the rugged stonewash finish on the grip and blade, a special lapping process that creates the unique micro-structure with its characteristic appearance. Limited to 100 pieces. 4034
