Founded in 1902, Cognet, the cutlers from Thiers, France, manufacture

simple, easy-to-repair design, is very comfortable to wear thanks to the
extremely slim design. Representing years of tradition, it is a special piece

    Douk Douk petite.

    Posted by Daniel Calderwood on 12th Aug 2021

    Edge rather rough as received, but greatly improved by a couple of minutes work with a chef's steel.

    A notorious classic.

    Posted by Felly Da! on 27th Apr 2021

    Rites of passage knife for the budding traditional enthusiast. Opinel, Svord, Higonakami, Victorinox, Mercartor etc. I like all of the above ... The douk-douk is not disimilar to the Mercartor - it's a bit smaller than the UK legal mercartor. I like this knife more than i thought i would- good sharpness from the factory. In this age of super steels It's still got plenty of utility to offer, nice and slicey Fruit, letters with ease. Fit and finish were excellent on mine - A thin knife it is surprisingly comfortable to use for smaller bursts of time and sittable tasks - that strong back spring makes it feel (within reason) safe to use. If you want one as a user or a collection piece - worth it imo. Long live the douk-douk! Thank you.

    Knife is very stiff to close and the handle and blade design had a few imperfections

    love love love it, so much character! no hesitation at all in recommending this little slice of history. the action is solid enough on mine that i feel perfectly safe using the loop with a neck chain, makes it just about the perfect neck knife as it's legal carry (though the blade shape may turn heads), low profile, and weighs next to nothing.

    Fab little folder

    Excellent

    Posted by Brian on 2nd Jul 2019

    After having the full sized Douk Douk I was so impressed, I ordered the petite knife. Again not disappointed. I ordered a Fallkniven FH9 pouch as well and the petite fits perfectly. Keeps the knife fluff free and pockets don't wear. Once again HH service was outstanding. Ordered on Monday afternoon 1st July and they arrived Tuesday morning 2nd July.

    my new favourite

    Posted by Grood on 4th Oct 2018

    My douk douk arrived today. Thank you HH. It truly is the best knife i've seen: simple, sturdy, beautiful. Really lovely steel and looks lived in, like me. I shall be putting some away for when the kids are older.

    fantastic but carbon steel

    Posted by GG on 12th Dec 2017

    A leftover from the colonial era, with super sharp carbon steel blade. An absolute best for pocket carry - the slimmest of all. The blade shape (a non-aggressive yatagan shape) is the best there is for whittling and woodcarving. My personal favourite from the times when it used to cost 6 Euros (!). While it is an excellent knife, you should be aware of a few drawbacks: * the blade is very thin at the end, it is possible to snap off a bit if you use it for prying * you should fold the lanyard loop over the end of the blade, as a security and also bc it can make a hole in your pocket. But a higonokami WILL make a hole unless you carry it in a case, so .. * the carbon steel of the blade can rust - it happened in the summer in my pocket, so keep the blade oiled and wash it after cutting a lemon, or you can sharpen it again.

    If you like knives and don't have one of these - why?

    Posted by Richard on 7th Nov 2017

    It's a no brainer. Absolutely fantastic, I am delighted with it. It's a cracking size, just peeks out the top of the jeans watch pocket and much slipper and easier to carry than an Opinel. Utilitarian I would have one of these in an emergency tin, the blade is so much better than I expected and, in fact despite being cheap and rough and ready - in the way a claw hammer is, it is very well made for what it is designed to be. The lanyard ring slips over the end of the blade when closed as a double security safety lock but with the strength of the spring on it this wouldn't open in your pocket. Brilliant! simply brilliant! I'm going to get the bigger one!
