Deejo. The knife that resembles you.
Deejo was born from our desire to recapture the elegance of a timeless gesture from the past...the everyday pocket knife. We imagined it simple and light, ultralight, without compromising size, to carry with you only the pure essential: the pleasure of a perfect cut.
In 2010 Stéphane Lebeau designed and invented an ultralight pocket knife, with a weight comparable to that of a simple letter. The ultralight slips comfortably into a pocket, an elegant accessory to any daily ensemble, but still comfortable to use: a perfect balance of a minimalist look while respecting the functional dimensions of a table knife. Named by their weight, Deejo knives are not therefore light in size or material but by design.
A few years later, Luc Foin, Stéphane’s friend and partner, envisioned the idea of personalisation. Luc loves objects imbued with emotion and story, which reflect a time, a passion or a rare moment. Deejo knives therefore are customisable: to one’s style, taste and mood. Playing on the finishes of a steel blade—in the matte reflections of titanium or the brilliant reflections of shining mirror—and a handle adorned with the wood of various species—from the deep blacks of ebony to the fine beige arabesque of olivewood—Deejo knives inflect a new symbol of elegance, accompanied by a beautiful watch, an artisanal pen or a finely-crafted leather good.
And the story continues: Deejo innovates beyond the traditional knife by offering ‘tattoos’. Tattooing a knife, just like tattooing on skin, personalises a Deejo even more, adding a whole new dimension: identity. Diverse patterns and images inspired from the tattoo world adorn the Deejo blade, allowing you to create a treasured object, an individual piece that is uniquely you.
