Chateau Laguiole Corkscrew Edge

TheChateau Laguiole® Grand Cru Edge series introduces vibrant color to the iconic waiter-style corkscrew. Each model is distinguished by a color-dyed wood edge liner, adding a unique touch to the traditional design.

Launched in 2020, this model features a "forged bee," which means the bee is now an integral part of the spring (the ornate top section) rather than being soldered. This innovation enhances the corkscrew's durability and aesthetic appeal.

Chateau Laguiole® waiter-style openers are renowned for their flawless craftsmanship—handcrafted wine openers at their finest. Master Sommelier Guy Vialis introduced them in 1993, and they became instant classics, carving their authentic mark in the market as the first-ever waiter-style Laguiole corkscrew.

When it was first introduced, this renowned wine opener had only one model and sold around 80,000 units in its debut year. Since then, it has become the favorite among the world's top sommeliers and remains the most popular - and often copied - high-end Laguiole corkscrew used by waiters and sommeliers.

Chateau Laguiole corkscrews are handcrafted in Thiers, a charming city in south-central France. Known as the cutlery capital of Europe for over seven centuries, Thiers boasts a rich tradition of exquisite craftsmanship. In 1992, the ingenious Mr. Vialis of "Guy Vialis Creation" introduced the world to the timeless elegance of the Chateau Laguiole.

Certainly! It's completely normal, especially for new corkscrews. The screw's spring action is engineered to endure for years, necessitating a tight clearance between the screw and the spring (the long, adorned spine just below the bee symbol). This allows for some gradual wear and tear over time, ensuring optimal functionality in the long run.

The answer to whether a Chateau Laguiole is hand-made or not depends on the perspective. From an ethical standpoint, the answer would be both "yes" and "no". To qualify as hand-made, a piece would have to undergo the traditional forging, shaping, assembling, and polishing process 100% by hand. Although modern tools are used for every part except the handle material, each Chateau Laguiole is meticulously assembled entirely by hand and subject to rigorous standards and testings before being deemed complete. The handle material is also carefully chosen and sculpted by hand for a flawless finish.

It's actually a bee, which has become the symbol of these knives. According to local legend, the bee was Napoleon Bonaparte's imperial seal, given to the town of Laguiole as a gesture of thanks for the bravery of its men during battles. However, "the bee" is also a technical term used by French knife makers to refer to the springhead.

Chateau Laguiole is pronounced, "SHATO LAYOL". The old pronunciation, in Occitan, was preserved, this is the reason why one says "LAYOL"

 Laguiole is the name of a small village located in south central France. The famous knife of the same name was born there in 1829.

The brand's name can be easily deciphered. Many of France's finest wines are associated with a "Chateau," while the wine accessory is inspired by the elegant "Laguiole" style of cutlery. It's worth noting that "Laguiole" isn't a registered brand of cutlery, but rather the name of the village where this style originated. The name "Chateau Laguiole" demonstrates an ingenious play on words, crafted by a particularly astute sommelier.
