FORGE DE LAGUIOLE

We are the Laguiole knive manufactory, which produces its knives entirely in the French village of Laguiole according to a tradition dating back to 1828.

FORGE DE LAGUIOLE
The Handle

Precious wood, horn, bone or even mammoth molar - we carefully select the materials for our handles. By hand, our knifemakers carve and shape each individual handle.

The Bee

The bee on our knives from the Collection series by Forge de Laguiole® is chiselled by hand with a file and awl. According to legend, the presence of Napoleon's imperial symbol is a tribute to the courage of the people of Laguiole by Napoleon himself.

The Bolsters

To protect the handle in daily use, our knives are fitted with end bolsters. The so-called mitres are made of steel or traditionally of brass and close off the handle. They are individually forged and attached to the drilled and polished plates.

The Monobloc

The simple and elegant monobloc knife is made from one piece of high-quality steel - forged at 1000°C. The blade combines exceptional edge retention and unparalleled corrosion resistance. The blade combines exceptional edge retention and unparalleled corrosion resistance. Thanks to its shape, the handle lies particularly precisely in the hand. As the knives are waterproof, maintenance is particularly easy.

The Screw and the Lever

Opening the finest vintage wines with sometimes fragile corks requires the perfect tool. With our sommelier knives you can open even old wines with ease - thanks to the conical spindle with five turns.

The Stainless Steel

The blades of our knives are forged at 1000° in our manufactory. They are made of a French steel produced exclusively for Forge de Laguiole®. This T12 steel is the result of a clever combination of carbon and chrome - it ensures exceptional sharpness, excellent edge retention and remarkable sharpenability, while maintaining the unalterability of the blade.
