Fact: Laguiole is the name of a small village located in south central France, it is not a brand of knives, it is a style of cutlery. The famous knife of the same name was born there in the 1820s. Unfortunately the name Laguiole was never registered and is, to this day totally unprotected in the cutlery business. Anyone can use this name on any type of cutlery, therefore one must be very cautious when purchasing a " bargain " knife or corkscrew. Written  " Laguiole " and pronounced as "LAYOL", the old pronunciation, in Occitan, was preserved, this is the reason why one says "LAYOL".
