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.
Appreciated by connoisseurs, this Sommelier knife was produced in collaboration with professional sommeliers. The conical corkscrew with 5 turns optimizes its functionality.
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.
The bee is a traditional symbol on our knives. 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.
A Forge de Laguiole® knife brings authenticity and sophistication to a table set with love and care. Its cut underlines the pleasure of a carefully prepared meal.
The handles, whether made of wood, horn, bone or from other rare materials such as mammoth teeth or stingray skin, are individually selected, sculpted and handset by our Master-Knifesmiths.
