The L'Epicurien is a gentelmans knife for the fact it can be carried in your shirt pocket like a pen because of the pen clip and sleek design. Click the link and you will see 2 models of the knife I'm referring to. Youtube.I ordered a Claude Dozorme about a year ago from A Touch of Modern and the knife .is a French Laguiole pocket knife. I became a knife collector from that point. I have many Laguioles, Opinels, and a couple of Cold Steels but my coolest one is my L'Epicurien by Robert David with horn scales.
