The Laguiole Nature features the traditional size and shape of a classic Laguiole pocket knife. However, adding a Teflon-assisted lock back system and a solid blade stop makes this knife one of our favorites. This 12 cm handle knife also features a forged bee, a full-length hand chiseled spring, and of course, the famous shepherd cross on most models (check photos). This knife also features a solid hardened blade stop to help prevent the blade's edge from making contact with the inner area of the spring. What is a Forged Bee? You can recognize a forged bee when you look just below it, where it meets the decorated spring. If you do not see any gaps, it's a good sign that the bee and spring were forged from the same piece of metal. The Guilloché series features additional chiseling on the spring and liners (top & bottom).
Blade Size: 9.8 cm (3.85") | Handle Size: 12 cm (4.72") including lock back release | Open Size: 21.8 cm (8.58")
EXACT KNIFE PICTURED
No one wants to view photos of a beautiful and unique pocket knife and receive something not even close to the representative photo. It is common for retailers to show an exceptional knife to trigger a sale and ship something similar but not as attractive. If you are dissatisfied with your knife and you purchased it overseas, you will need to 1. Pay for costly international return shipping or 2. Keep the knife and wish you had purchased it from us. This is why we take photos of each pocket knife; you can see exactly what you will receive. Although taking over 1000 photos a month is a full-time position, we don't charge extra for this service!
THINGS TO LOOK FOR
1. The file work on the springs' top are individually hand-filled. As a result, each top is unique.
2. Two handles made from the same type of material can have very different patterns.
