In short, Laguiole cutlery is for living well…

Everything started at the beginning of the 19th century. This typical shape was developed by the farmers of Aubrac (France). These men, used to a harsh climate and country life, created a tool for those very circumstances. This sturdy knife with simple beauty has been the companion of many farmers since over two centuries. This knife has been crafted entirely by hand according to the long tradition of the Aveyronnais region. Every piece is authentic and carefully chosen, the horn or special wood for the handle, as well as the 440 steel for the blade (surgical steel),which has a remarkable life-span.

For the past 15 years the Laguiole tradition is back, few workshops are continuing the tradition producing a limited number of those magnificent knives. Each blade is forged, assembled from start to finish by the same craftsman, it’s what makes them so unique.
