The sand that is used for the handle of this knife comes from a tumultuous river called “La Selves” that rises from the Aubrac Plateau and crosses the village of Laguiole.

As the landscape and the village, “La Selves” river has a strong character. Indeed, the abundant flow and the cold and pure water are the main characteristics of this river. Since always, the iron smith and the cutlers of Laguiole have used the river for their work. They used to temper the blades in this water to give them their famous solidity.
