A prestigious heritage

The history of Vauzy-Chassangue is born in Thiers, in Auvergne, in the heart of France, land of volcanoes powerful and fertile with a harsh climate. The city, built on the mountainside, is crossed by the Durolle over 450 meters of elevation. Its limestone-free waters have exceptional qualities for the hardening of steel. Thus, since the Middle Ages, in every street, in every house, families of cutlers perpetuate a tradition of excellence and an authentic know-how, transmitted from generation to generation. From 1751, Louis Vauzy made his first models, solid and elegant knives. Cutlery Chassangue, it is very popular with hawkers, who from city to city crisscross Europe and make known the excellence of its products.
