The term Laguiole refers to both a provenance and the style of a knife.
They have their origin in the village of Laguiole – France, on a high plateau of volcanic and granitic rock, wild and proud, where the formidable history of these knives was born in 1828.
Originally it was a peasant’s knife with an arched line, fly and a spring decorated with a guillochage pattern. Its international recognition has resulted in many misleading imitations from all over the world. As a regional knife, the authentic Laguiole is handmade in the village of Laguiole.
