The Bee- Folding knife Tradition

The bee is one of the symbol on our traditional knives Forge de Laguiole.  It is forged and is an integral part of the spring.

The Handle

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 Blade - Folding knives

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.

The plates

The plates are metal parts that lie between the material of the handle and the spring. The stainless steel or brass end bolsters are attached to these plates. Our Edition series folding knives have double plates that widens the handle. The double plate option is also available on some of our other models. They can be smooth on our Edition series knives or guillochaged on the Collection series. This way you can further personalise your Collection series knife.


Your Laguiole knife requires a minimum of care to stay in good condition and guarantee its longevity.

Do not get your knife wet. We advise you to wipe the blade of your knife with a cloth after each use. 

It is necessary to accompany the blade when closing your knife to avoid dulling the edge with a brutal closing. 

The closing notch of your folding knife needs to be greased regularly.
