The two bolsters (mitres) are forged and fixed on a metal liner, which will be drilled before the assembly. These massive steel bolsters help to protect the handle during daily use.
Appreciated by connoisseurs, this Sommelier knife was produced in collaboration with professional sommeliers. The conical corkscrew with 5 turns optimizes its functionality.
The Guillochage, a goldsmith’s skill, is the decoration composed of different line patterns, elaborated on the spine of the spring. Here, the bee and the spring are completely hand sculpted by our Master-Knifesmiths.
The bee, one of the symbols of an Original Forge de Laguiole® knife, is carved with a file and an engraver. The legend goes that the Napoleonic imperial symbol was attributed to the citizens of Laguiole by Emperor Napoléon himself as a tribute to their courage shown in the services to the emperor.
The blades, made from the high-quality French T12 steel which is exclusively produced for Forge de Laguiole®, are forged to 1000°C in our manufactory in Laguiole, France. This stainless steel is the result of a perfectly balanced combination of carbon and chrome providing an exceptional cutting edge while guaranteeing a high durability.
