SHARPER IMAGE: Dunhill threw open the doors of its Bourdon House for an exhibition showcasing heritage Milanese cutler, or knife grinder, G. Lorenzi. The men’s wear firm purchased both archives and remaining stock from the Italian brand when it closed last year.

“There is a very old business relationship between Dunhill and Lorenzi,” explained Dunhill chief executive Fabrizio Cardinali who, in addition to using some items as inspiration for new products, plans to present and sell the product at Dunhill boutiques.

The exhibition featured exquisite pieces from the archives including a mammoth Damascus pocket knife, stag horn handled bottle opener, roe buck horn shaving brushes, mother of pearl chess set and cigar humidors in carbon coated kingfisher blue, shagreen painted sycamore and rosewood.
