Precious wood, horn, bone or even mammoth molar – we carefully select the materials for our handles. By hand, our knifemakers carve and shape each individual handle.
The knife handles are sawn from the raw material in our manufactory. During assembly, each side is precisely adjusted to the hundredth – millimetre, so that the handles fit perfectly between the two centres of the knife. No gap is visible between the handle and the end bolsters. An important quality feature for Forge de Laguiole®.
Traditionally, the handles of our knives are made of wood, horn or bone. Gradually, we have added newer, more modern and more readily available materials to our range – such as acrylic, compressed fabric or compressed ash wood. This has resulted in a wide range of different models.
