Browne & Co. to Distribute Nogent in U.S.

MARKHAM, Ontario-Browne & Co. has reached a partnership agreement with Nogent to be the exclusive distributor of the 90 year-old French cutlery manufacturer in the United States.

"Nogent's reputation for performance and European design complement Browne's existing brands Cuisipro, Kitchen Grips and Berard," said Peter Braley, chief operating officer of Browne & Co. "The two companies have complementary product lines so this new relationship provides an excellent opportunity to introduce their line to a new consumer base."

Every Nogent knife features a beveled blade to ensure "a high quality cutting edge" that requires less frequent sharpening, and the company's patented micro-serration process inscribes the blade with four tiny teeth per millimeter so the serration is almost invisible to the naked eye.
