The 9 cm Laguiole pocket knives are considered small knives that are big enough to use as EDC and small enough to be placed in a jeans' front pocket or a small purse. There are many reasons a Laguiole knife can retail for much more than another model of similar size and material. The finish of the metal, the construction of the spring and bee, and above all the chiseling and filing of the spring & bee all contribute to the added cost.
Each knife in the "Collection" series features a hand chiseled spring and bee. The art of chiseling a "one of a kind" folding knife is very time-consuming, sometimes over 1 hrs to complete the spring & bee alone. Additionally, only the most skilled cutlers/artists are able to achieve this very complicated task.Blade Size: 3" / 7.60 cm long - 3 mm thick | Handle Size: 9.4 cm - 3. 3/4" | Open Size: 17 cm (6.70")
