Mizpira – Medlar Fruit
All rights reserved by Les Couteliers Basques
While its spring is smooth and attires itself of a refined basque cross which is sculpted by hand, symbol of the basque identity, its tight design combines the elegance of the satin stainless steel with the heat of the colourful medlar patina. Each of its curves tells you about a story, the love story between the medlar, the time and the man…

There is in Basque Country forests a very special type of wood, a rare and singular tree which precious branches are worked for years by hand : it is called the Medlar. It grows in the wild, deeply hidden in the forest, protected by ramparts of brambles. Both sturdy and easy to work, it is exclusively used to make the Makila, the famous shepherds’ stick. Its fruit, Mizpira in basque, gave its name to the first creation of Les Couteliers Basques.
