Botanex began with a vision to provide discerning gardeners, landscapers and foresters with products online not always readily and easily available. After realizing there was a gap in the Australian market for camping equipment from online retailers with a taste for quality and style we also carefully added this to our great range of products.
The Deejo began as a desire on the part of Luc Foin and Stéphane Lebeau to (re)kindle the pleasure of having a knife in your pocket when you need one.
When they invented an ultra-light pocket knife weighing little more than a letter in 2010, they had no idea it would be such a hit.
Their knife was originally designed for and geared to the hiking enthusiasts that have trusted the brand for over 20 years. Aside from the traditional clients, though, they noticed that other people, all over the world, like the knife and use it on a daily basis. They want to make the pocket knife a new (or revisited) every-day basic for as many people as possible.
Why? Let’s be honest: a Deejo isn’t just useful – it’s beautiful
