Nicolas Pierre Pelletier (1828-1921), a highly skilled chisel maker, was undoubtedly a craftsman and an artist, as Dr Bonnet notes: "With Pelletier, [...] each pair of scissors is an image of life, steel comes to life like a model.
Nicolas Pierre Pelletier is the author of models made by craftsmen from start to finish. He spends between one and two months of work to make a single piece. Without any notion of design, he created models of scissors made of steel shaped like lace that produced a "real revolution in the art of chiselling" (A. Petit) at the end of the 19th century. For the first time, an exhibition is dedicated to him at the Musée de la coutellerie de Nogent.
