The Blade (table)

The manufacturing know-how of our Master-Knifesmiths combined with the quality of the steel guarantee the exceptional cutting edge and a long lifespan, which make the Original Forge de Laguiole® knives famous. They can be easily sharpened and do not oxidize. The sharp cut provides sensations that flatter the senses and complete the pleasure of a lovely meal.

The Stainless Steel

The blades, made from the high-quality French T12 steel which is exclusively produced for Forge de Laguiole®, are forged to 1000°C in our manufactory in Laguiole, France. This stainless steel is the result of a perfectly balanced combination of carbon and chrome providing an exceptional cutting edge while guaranteeing a high durability.

The Bee (plt)

The bee is a traditional symbol on our knives. The legend goes that the Napoleonic imperial symbol was attributed to the citizens of Laguiole by Emperor Napoléon himself as a tribute to their courage shown in the services to the emperor.

The Handle

The handles, whether made of wood, horn, bone or from other rare materials such as mammoth teeth or stingray skin, are individually selected, sculpted and handset by our Master-Knifesmiths.

The Guillochage (AF)

The Guillochage, a goldsmith’s skill, is the decoration composed of different line patterns, elaborated on the spine of the spring. Here, the bee and the spring are completely hand sculpted by our Master-Knifesmiths.

The Bolsters

The two bolsters (mitres) are forged and fixed on a metal liner, which will be drilled before the assembly. These massive steel bolsters help to protect the handle during daily use.
