Saint Patrick converted Ireland to Christianity at the fifth century. This hasn’t been done without difficulties since the Druid beliefs were very strong.To carry out its mission of conversion, he met many people who had a great influence on the country of Ireland, including the king Aengus. St Patrick then tried to explain to the king the concept of trinity by using a clover. According to him, each leaf represents an entity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. As a whole clover, it represents God, which helps to explain that God is presented as 3 people. After several years of evangelization, St Patrick died on March 17, 461 BC. Since after we associated rapidly the clover to Saint Patrick, then to the whole country of Ireland.
Clover is a symbol of Ireland, of its culture and of its folklore. But the symbolism of clover is also seen as good luck. Someone able to find a 4-leaf clover will be lucky. The clover Laguiole knife made by the cutler Actiforge is rich of two symbols: The famous cross shepherd on the handle and the four-leaf clover on the fly.
This is the knife of St. Patrick, for those who love Ireland!
