The blades of our folding knives are hot forged from French steel and can have a shiny or satin finish. Thanks to our T12 steel, our blades have exceptional sharpness, excellent edge retention and remarkable sharpenability, while always 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 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.
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.
Delicacy, complexity, aesthetics: guillochage, a goldsmith's work, combines all of these. A particularly filigree pattern is created from several interweaving wavy lines. The decoration is worked into the front of our table knives and the nib of our folding knives.
