50-Blade Exhibition Knife by Pius Lang, Germany 1950


What started out in the 19th century as a method to display all of the blades they offered Pius Lang was born. These custom handmade beauties are object's de virtu. The company started at the end of the 19th century and continue today making these multi blade knives for knife enthusiast and lovers of fine things. This particular model was made in the middle of the 20th century and is in spectacular condition. We believe that we were the first to open each blade.
