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.
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.
Our knives are world-famous for their excellent cut. It comes from the perfect interplay of the quality of the steel and the perfect processing of the blades by our knife smiths. For us, a perfect cut quality also means that the blade stays sharp for a long time.
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.
