"The story starts to unfold in 1902 in La Monnerie, a town close to Thiers. Blaise Dozorme, an expert steel worker, decides to use his expertise and open a small knife-making workshop in his own home.
His entrepreneurial spirit and the dominant personality resulted in his peers naming him «The Wolf », which influenced the design of the business decades later.
During the 1970s the business started to develope on a larger scale. At that time Claude Dozorme, son of Valentin and gandson of Blaise, was the head of the company. He invested massively in tools and mechanisations to expand and develope the operation even further. At the start of the 1980s the brand "Claude Dozorme" was born.
In 1991 a major change occured as Claudine Dozorme, Claude Dozorme's daughter, took charge of the sale and marketing management. Her vigor and creativity not only made the brand the international success it is today but also brought her the "Auvergne Personaliy of the Year" award in addition to the "Ordre du Mérite" and "Légion d'Honneur" she already holds.
