Located in France on a rocky spur over the Durolle river, the medieval houses of the Old Town section of Thiers are terraced around narrow and sloping streets. The development of cutlery production here dates to the 15th century. Starting at this time, life in the city became tightly bound to the making of knives. Near the river lived the unskilled workers and blacksmiths, while the craftsmen and cutlery manufacturers were established in the old part of the city.
From the outset, the knife manufacturing process requires the presence of various craft corporations (a minimum of 105 operations are necessary to make a pocket knife): forging, blunting, hardening, polishing and assembly of the parts where the know how of the setter adjusting the pieces is the guarantee of the knife functioning correctly.
