Festival of the Knifemakers

The annual rendezvous for lovers of handcrafted knives is at Easter, in the Iron and Railway Museum.

The 11th Festival of the Knifemakers will receive 26 Swiss and French knifemakers who are real craftsmen. Their purpose is to exhibit their new models. Come during the Easter weekend, from 26th to 28th March 2016, and discover their creations. You will also be able to enjoy many other attractions (demonstrations at the forge, work in bronze, axe throwing). Our temporary exhibition ‘La renaissance du damas, hommage à W. F. Moran’ (‘The renaissance of Damascus steel, a tribute to W.F. Moran’) will take you back to an extraordinary stage of knife-making, with items that are the stuff of dreams. On-site catering. Prices and opening hours as usual.
