Deglon debuts two new collections
French cutlery manufacturer Jean Deglon launches its Meeting and Generation Y ranges
For French manufacturer Déglon, cutlery must combine technological prowess and beauty. This is particularly the case for the French brand's two new ranges, Meeting and Génération Y.
Meeting is a collection designed by a creative design student, Mia Schmallenbach, in association with Déglon, for the 5th edition of the Creative Cutlery Scholarship.
The collection has 4 super-flat knife sets; the knives slot into one another:
- 3 sets of 3 or 4 kitchen knives,
- 1 set of 4 steak knives.
The streamlined and pared-back shape of these knives gives the collection its contemporary edge and perfect ergonomic hold.
The Génération Y collection (pictured) is born of Déglon's expertise. Its brand new design resides in particular in its exceptional handle that has neither rivets nor screws. The two sides of the wooden handle are assembled using an exclusive system that guarantees solidity and robustness.
For the best possible hold, the handle is in rosewood with a very pleasant touch and warming tone. The bolster has been reworked and has a half-sphere on each side of the blade, for perfect balance and handling.
Since its creation in 1921 by Jean Déglon, the cutlery manufacturer has been making knives and kitchen utensils for professionals and the general public. Based in Thiers in Auvergne and currently managed by his grandson Thierry Déglon, the company generates over 20% of its revenue overseas.
