Founded in 1902 in Thiers by Blaise Dozorme, known as “The Wolf”, the Manufacture Claude Dozorme transcends an always more audacious cutlery.
Originating from ancestral know-how, modernized and shaken up, firmly pointed towards creation and technical innovation, the Manufacture Claude Dozorme has now integrated 98% of the manufacturing stages of its knives. Thanks to this unmatched know-how, inseparable from innovation, Claude Dozorme received the title of Master Artisan Cutler by the French Trade Chamber. And it’s also for its entrenchment in its terroir and its know-how of excellence that the cutlery Claude Dozorme received in 2009 the very prestigious label Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant, (Living Patrimony Company) by the French State. With the inclusion of French gastronomy in the intangible cultural heritage of humanity, it is the French art de vivre that Claude Dozorme honors. It is in the Art of Living and gastronomy that the Manufacture Dozorme gets inspiration for the designs in its range of table-ware and cutlery. Symbol of France in the same way as cheese and wine, bread is an essential component of French meals. For proof, more than 9 out of 10 French eat bread on a regular basis! Sacred food of everyday life, its cutting and its handling are essential to appreciate it as it should be. That’s why Dozorme manufactures a whole range of products centered on the bread for impeccable service and perfect cutting. Whoever evokes France thinks instantaneously of its cheeses. With 1,000 different varieties and an annual consumption of 24 kg per year per person, France is without contest the country of cheese. The Dozorme manufacture offers a wide range of cutting and serving utensils to offer an impeccable cheese tray. At the same time solemn and convivial, the opening of a bottle is an act which requires great care and much precaution, particularly when it is a great vintage or an exceptional cuvée. The Coutellerie Claude Dozorme offers very precise corkscrews featuring an excellent grip while guaranteeing a perfect opening of the bottles with-out damaging or breaking the corks. A collaboration even took place with the French actor Gérard Depardieu, a great ambassador of French wines and gastronomy.
