The Silversmith Chopping Knife was designed by Gabriele Pezzini for Puiforcat. Gabriele Pezzini explored the kitchen of the great chef Pierre Gagnaire, meticulously observing the gestures of the chef and his teams. This encounter provided the inspiration for the Silversmith Collection, a collection of expert blades that combine cutting-edge technology and razor-sharp aesthetics. To fashion these specialized objects, the craftsmen of the House of Puiforcat make use of Evercut, a patented steel processing technology that guarantees a virtually eternal blade, thus eliminating the need for sharpening for years to come. The Silversmith collection contains a Chopping Knife, Paring Knife, Filetting Knife, Boning Knife, Slicing Knife, Bread Knife, a Complete 6 knives block, a Set of 2 Paring Knives in a box, a Steak Knife and a Set of 6 Steak Knives in a box.

Boasting exceptional savoir-faire, the House of Puiforcat offers pieces of its heritage while imagining the classics of tomorrow. The Parisian silversmith Puiforcat is regarded as one of the legendary names in European silver craftsmanship.
