The Forge de Laguiole steak knives are entirely hand made in the village of Laguiole and are, by far, the highest quality "Laguiole table knives" aka "couteaux de table Laguiole " offer in the market today.
Each individual knife is entirely assembled and shaped by the same artisan to ensure pride in the completed piece. The bolsters are massif (not hollow) and forged in house. At over 100 grams each, they are not lightweight, consider that fact before owning them.
The Forge de Laguiole workshop is located in the tiny village of Laguiole, France - Pop. 1300 - where the Laguiole knife first appeared in the early 1800s.
