New Laguiole knives delivery...

These are the nicest Laguiole knives we ever had. All special ordered and made just for us, one at a time by the best craftsmen. Amazing details and finishes.

The big ones are hunting knives but can be use as steak knives for meat lovers. On the one on top all the detail is in the wood grain and the amazing dark damask blade. Bottom one is more traditional with light cow horn and polished stainless steel.

The best gift for a men ...an authentic Laguiole knife !

 

In a throwaway society, here is an object you will keep for the rest of your life, then leave to your grandchildren. Laguiole the world’s most elegant knife.To the French , this is the tool of choice for uncorking the best wines, slicing saucisson, spreading pate, coating a slice of country bread with Roquefort.

In short, Laguiole cutlery is for living well…

DSCN5958 (Large).JPGAll our knives have their bee forged as one piece with the spring ( it is not a separate piece that they weld onto the spring )

We only order the best materials : exotic woods , solid horn (pointe de corne ) never the pressed horn that chip in the long run

DSCN5949 (Large).JPGBig rivets for the full handle knives ...just like antique Laguiole were done.

DSCN2980 [1600x1200].JPGMost importantly , we carry real genuine Laguiole knives that are hand forged in laguiole . One craftman start and finish each knife and carve the spring as his signature . All knifes have forged bee and carved by hand springs ....we leave the cheap stuff for the internet sites as well as the copies. If it's cheap , it cannot be handforged in France ...

Know the difference , you'll appreciate the quality !
