There are shops that lack both soul and history, which you visit through necessity and which are immediately forgotten. There are others that draw you in for the pleasure, by curiosity, or that just look interesting. La Coutellerie du Roi is assuredly one of the latter.

The Coutellerie du Roi : a story

First of all at the Coutellerie du Roi, there is the decor, unique and sumptuous, dating back to 1881, when that strange Passage du Nord which joins Rue Neuve at Place De Brouckère was built. The store has a classified facade that is used as a model for the restoration of the neighbouring shops. There is also interior shelving, a spiral staircase and a cash register made of original wood. Then there is the warm welcome of the owner. One will discover a remnant of the soul of Brussels in her, in her speech...a slight accent, subtle, but definitely there... but especially in her way which makes you feel, from the moment you cross the threshold, as if she has known you for forever and a day.

The shop's purpose

Blades and steel without end. Knives and scissors for all and much more: scissors - egg-cutters - nail clippers - shears - cigar-cutters - pipe-cleaners - razor blades (with genuine shaving brushes) - kitchen knives and pepper grinders
