Les Fines Lames are soon available in Germany. The French accessory brand and 5th Avenue, the Habanos distributor for Germany, Austria, and Poland signed a distribution agreement. The distributor is currently offering the Les Fines Lames Le Petit to all the German La Casa del Habano Franchises. Next year Habanos Specialist in Germany can order the cigar knives as well. In a later stage, all German tobacco shops can order the knives through 5th Avenue. There are currently no plans for distribution of Les Fines Lames in Austria and Poland, the other two markets for 5th Avenue.
Les Fines Lames
In 2016 a new cigar knife was seen on the social media channels of a select number of influencers. It was a concept by a French cigar aficionado who decided to design and make cigar knives. Made in France with the highest quality and in limited editions with unique materials. The brand received enough backing on a crowdfunding website to make it into production and has been a success since.
Just this summer, Les Fines Flames introduced a smaller version of their knife: Le Petit. And again, crowdfunding was the way to finance and introduce the miniature version. It exceeded it’s goal several times and over 900 knives were sold. The shipping of the knives starts this week and will continue until the end of the month.
And it’s this ‘Le Petit’ that will be distributed by 5th Avenue. Les Fines Lames informed Ministry of Cigars that for now, the 6 regular knives will be offered. There are no special releases planned for the German market for now. Those 6 offerings are the Olivewood, Ebony, Padauk, Blue Micarta, Carbon, and Copper versions. It is expected that the Le Petit by Les Fines Lames will arrive in the German La Casa del Habano shops before Christmas.
