The 2014 collection of Laguiole knives includes a wide variety of great knives made in France. The highlight of this collection is the Bras/Soulages, a knife designed by André Bras, brother of famed restaurateur Michel Bras and La Forge de Laguiole for the “Café Bras” restaurant at the Soulages Museum.
This dishwasher-friendly Laguiole knife is an ode to both gastronomy and to the art of painting. It is an exclusive knife whose shape is subtly similar to that of a paint brush.
It is distinguished by its dark dense wooden handle and offers a beautiful contrast with the light straight yatagan stainless steel blade.
Note that this Laguiole knife made by Bras and commissioned by Soulages is available as a 12 cm “pocket knife” with a handle made of black compressed paper, a stainless steel front and a black leather string.
Bras/Soulage knife remains a magnificent tribute to the Aveyron painters, to the inventive cuisine of Michel and Sébastien Bras and to the expertise of Forge de Laguiole creators and cutlers, whose talent and creativity have exceeded the French borders.
