SOMETHING YOU MUST KNOW
MUST-READ BEFORE PURCHASING ANY LAGUIOLE PRODUCTS
It is believed that French pocket knives making started at the beginning of the 13th Century in the village of Nontron. Today French cutlers are producing high quality replicas of the originals as well as modernized versions. Sadly, a few Laguiole manufacturers are cutting corners in an effort to churn-out cheap pocket or steak knives. Those are the now infamous "Laguiole" steak knife brands you still find in Big Box Stores. Such knives usually fall apart in a few months and, as a result, are detrimental to other high-quality and ethical Laguiole brands.
The name "Laguiole" is free to use on cutlery items by anyone and such knives can be manufactured anywhere in the world. With that in mind, you probably understand why this style of cutlery is available in big box stores at ridiculously cheap prices. Remember the saying, "You get what you pay for"!
We are getting daily calls or emails about Laguiole knives self-destructing after a couple of months of use. Such Laguiole knives are mass-produced in France or Asia and yes, believe it or not sometimes in both locations - more about this dilemma here. Many Laguiole knives sold by U.S. and French retailers alike are not even made in France at all. Of course such knives are not offered by us. Laguiole Imports works with French manufacturers that have shown high ethical values and fully honor warranty & repair services.
All French knives and Laguiole corkscrews offered by Laguiole Imports are hand made and 100% manufactured in France.
