The Forge de Laguiole has its own workshop for sawing the knives.
We select the best pieces of wood, horn and contemporary materials such as carbon or mineral acrylic. When we cut a horn in two the two sides are used on the same knife to assure a visual quality.
The same is true for the different types of wood. We work as much as we can with species of tree from the French countryside (oak, juniper, pistachio and olive). The exotic woods used are sourced as much as possible in respect of guidelines for the protection of endangered species. We also work in partnership with French government agencies in this area.
All materials are sculpted by hand.
