The International Forum of Contemporary Knives has rounded up 80 artist craftsfolk for the 2nd edition at the Palais Brongniart. This event is expected to be anything but dull.
FiCX-Paris presents a unique set of knife-makers among the most renowned and innovative of our time.
Come and admire the richness and cultural diversity of art knives and discover the skills of these craftsmen who combine tradition and innovation to express themselves through forms, mechanisms and unusual materials. Knife-makers bring the mark of their times to the nobility of traditional materials such as gold, silver, gems, tortoise shell, mother of pearl, ivory and shagreen, working with modern anodized alloys and unexpected composites to reveal perspectives, forms, styles and novel designs.
