Toby Platts – Coutelier.

Fabrication Française.
Couteaux TP    Le Sanglier Couteaux TPCela fait plus de vingt-quatre ans que je conçois et fabrique des meubles avec mon ami Ben. Ces nombreuses et diverses créations m’ont donné un sens aigu du détail et une grande expérience du bois bien entendu, mais aussi de bien d’autres matériaux. Ma vie d’artisan a développé ma passion pour les produits de haute qualité et rien ne quitte mon atelier qui n’ait satisfait à cette exigence.

Comme beaucoup avant moi, ma fascination pour les couteaux a débuté quand j’étais enfant et que j’allais pêcher et camper dans les forêts du sud de l’Angleterre. Le couteau devenait alors l’objet essentiel de mes randonnées.

J’ai commencé à créer mes propres couteaux quand, plus tard, dans la vie, il m’était impossible de trouver le couteau qui réponde exactement à mes besoins. Après de longues heures passées à dessiner dans l’atelier de mon grand-père et conseillé par des couteliers professionnels, j’ai réussi à créer mon propre couteau… ma passion pour la création de couteaux était née.

J’ai par la suite affiné les différentes techniques nécessaires pour fabriquer à la main de solides couteaux de chasse et de survie, alliant fonctionnalité, ergonomie et élégance, conçus pour durer toute une vie. Quelle que soit votre passion – la vie en pleine nature, la randonnée ou la chasse, un bon couteau vous permettra d’en profiter pleinement.


Je tiens à remercier tous mes clients pour leur soutien et aussi à exprimer ma sincère gratitude pour les gentils messages que j’ai reçus, dont certains sont inclus ci-dessous.

Dear Toby,

It worked out perfectly: the knife is here! …and it is exactly as I wanted it to be. The wood, the steel, the polish, the sheath, the grip,…everything! It is a great peace of craftsmanship for both steel and woodwork.

Thank you very much for making me such a nice knife. I never had such a knife before (also, I have to admit I never turned 50 before ) and I’m looking forward to using it a lot. Please find attached a foto of me, proudly presenting “my knife” to my daughter (who complimented me – and you – for choosing the nice Kingwood and for the flawless finish).

I think this will not be my last TP-Knife! With my best regards I wish you a nice summer and a lot of satisfied customers like me.

Dear Toby,

My knife arrived yesterday morning, oh boy, I was actually a little bit shaken. I can tell you, it does exceed my expectations, unbelievable workmanship!! It feels in every way like a dream in my hands, I can not wait to use this knife into the woods.

The wood itself is really amazing, it has the most beautiful shine on it, also the black liners are really contributing to the wood, and the mosaic pins, oh boy, what a luxury touch they give, I have never seen such beautiful mosaic pins!! The leatherwork is outstanding also, very very well made!! I can only speak in superlatives about this knife, I am that impressed!!

I am proud to own this knife, I am convinced this will be a good companion at my backpacking trips and my stays in the woods. Thank you very much for your workmanship, kindness, advice, alertness about my order, e-mail changings, fulfilled appointment about delivery time, it gives me a true good feeling about your character in person, it makes me the more happy to own this knife !! Sincerely yours,

Jurgen – Hollande


Dear Toby,

The knife arrived Saturday and is fantastic! I attended a local bushcraft meet over the bank holiday weekend so I was able to put the knife to work. Universally praised and admired by all who inspected it, I found it a joy to use. From food prep to carving I have used the knife for a variety of tasks and it has excelled at everything. I must say that the “Fit and Finish” is just stunning, the crisp lines and ergonomics have amazed every body who looked at it.

So a big thank you for everything you have done, and your good service. I will be a repeat customer. Thanks and regards,

Bonjour Monsieur,

Je viens de recevoir votre couteau. BRAVO, il est très beau. Je passe souvent des vacances dans votre région. Si cela ne vous dérange pas est-il possible de vous rendre visite et visiter votre atelier? A bientot j’espère.

Hi Toby,

As damn near perfection as is possible. That’s my first impression of this wonderful tool/creation/work of art you’ve sent me. The wood is absolutely stunning. The lines are perfect. In the hand it feels like an extension of my body. I’m very glad I went for the prototype blank. The slight drop in the blade gives the overall line of the knife a beautiful shape. Not sure what else I can say to be honest.

When I get some time I’ll be taking some photos of this and I’ll post a thread on several of the bushcraft and blade forums displaying this lovely piece of craftsmanship. Thanks for keeping me updated along the way Toby. It’s incredible watching the raw materials being fashioned into the finished article. Regards,

Darren – Pays de Galles


Hi Toby,

Well you were right! The thump on the doormat came a short while ago, so eagerly opened the package, WOW, was my first thought, which as I explored my new knife got louder and longer! What a beautiful piece of workmanship, it’s stunning Toby and more than well worth the investment.

I shall treasure this knife and pass on with eagerness where I had it made. Many thanks toby,

Ian Warburton – Angleterre & Afrique

Dear Friend

I have been collecting knives for more than twenty years, I have various Randall, some Dozier, and a good number of handmade knives from different countries. For some time now I have focused on Bushcraft knives. I have bought knives from anyone who wanted to sell me one of theirs, in total some 20 Bushcraft knives. Some very good, and some, to be honest, not so good, however the one you, my friend, made for me is a totally new level compared to the other knives I have. The high quality of the build, the excellent handle design, and the quality of the materials used make this model – although made for use – a luxury product.

I can give testimony of your dedication and interest to the work to which you have committed yourself, delivering a finished product that is just as offered and advertised on your website. Something that rarely occurs.

For anyone looking for a good knife, for outdoor, bushcraft or hunting use, I recommend you consider this master craftsman. Perhaps the only criticism I can make is that his knives are so beautiful you can’t bring yourself to use them. Regards,

Gaston Fuenzalida – Santiago, Chile


Dear Toby

The knife is here. It is just as nice as I was hoping it would be and looks exactly as I had it in mind. One more time you did a great job in all aspects: the superior quality of all components, the polished razor-sharp steel, the choice of wood and how you applied it to the blade, the detailed choice of liners and mosaic pins, the edgeless surface of the handle, the fitted sheath that holds the knife without play, just to name a few. Also, the custom sizing of the scales, with a little more “beef”, is perfect for my hand. Not to mention the time and effort you invested in those many emails, back and forth, during the planning and decision making process.

As a returning customer I can, once again, only say thank you very, very much for making such an awesome knife for me. I’m curious how long I can bear up against the urge to ask for the next TP-knife. All the best and greetings,

Jochen – Austria


Fabrication De Mes Couteaux

Chaque couteau que je fabrique présente un pommeau unique en forme de “V” et les lames sont estampillées avec mon logo Tipi.

Les Lames

Toutes les lames des couteaux sont fabriquées à partir d’un acier à outil haut carbone réputé pour sa qualité d’acier utilisé pour les ciseaux à bois, les lames de rabot et bien sûr les couteaux.

Tous les jours, des millions d’artisans du bois et autres professionnels font confiance à cet acier, qui est résistant, durable et peut facilement être ré-aiguisé en atelier ou sur une pierre d’affûtage de poche, lorsque l’on est en extérieur.

Le plat de la lame a une finition satinée et le tranchant façon Scandinave, après avoir été trempé et être revenu à la dureté HRC (Rockwell) 57-59, est aiguisé comme un rasoir.

Les Manches

La beauté naturelle et la durabilité du bois en font un matériau idéal pour les manches de couteaux. J’utilise une grande variété de bois durs, résistants aux rigueurs de la vie en plein air. On peut également ajouter des intercalaires de couleurs différentes pour contraster ou relever la beauté du grain.

Chaque manche est façonné individuellement pour s’adapter parfaitement à votre main, optimisant ainsi confort et sécurité.

Il est protégé par une formule spéciale d’huile de lin nourrissant le bois en profondeur, puis deux couches de cire d’abeille dont l’action limite le mouvement naturel du bois selon les saisons.

Les étuis

Chaque couteau est accompagné d’un étui en cuir fait main, double couture, façonné spécialement pour chaque couteau, assurant ainsi un maximum de sécurité.
