In Memory of Denis Lemaire -Win a Spyderco Laguiole

In Memory of Denis Lemaire

-Win a Spyderco Laguiole

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



The knife world quietly lost a quiet member. Denis Lemaire was an creative French Canadian cutlery designer, maker, and friend of Spyderco. In the early '90s Spyderco made a French-style Laguiole model which Denis had engineered and designed. He was adept at producing innovative concepts and was well-acquainted with French influenced cutlery designs. A folder named the AKMA was one of his inventions and is produced today by Florinox Cutlery of Thiers, France.



The Spyderco Laguiole debuted as a high-tech version of a time-honored design. It featured:



~ A front lock (developed by Al Mar and Harvey McBurnette), the first ever lock-back Laguiole

~ A handle of black Micarta with brass liners

~ Blade steel was G-2

~ The traditional Laguiole "bee" found its' appearance underwent a subtle, buggy make-over

~ Notably absent were the Spyderco round hole and a pocket clip

~ Notably present, Spyderco serrations

~ It came with a tooled leather belt sheath

~ Spyderco's French design was manufactured under the Ramco label in Seki City, Japan



In memory and honor of Denis we're giving away one of these unusual pieces. To enter, post your name (once only please) and we'll draw a winner at random Monday February 19th.



Good Luck!

Joyce,

I am sad to hear of M. Lemaire's passing. I have seen the Spyderco Laguiole and thought it to be a very interesting design. This a very nice gesture on Spyderco's part. I was going to put my name on the list but have changed my mind. I was lucky enough to win the Almite Navigator in the New Year draw so it's only fair that I give others a chance in this one (even although I do so like the Laguiole).

Take care,
Clay

A sad way to obtain a knife, but a good way to spread appreciation for the man's accomplishments, and keep his memory alive. All in all, this seems a fitting remembrance. Good on ya, Spyderco.

Knowing he spent time in his life making blades and doing what he loved is a little piece of mind for everyone

May He have been in Heaven a half hour before the Devil was aware of his passing.
