Laguiole Corkscrew knives, also known as "Laguiole 2 piece", were introduced in the 1880s when corked wine bottles became popular in urban society. This addition was a response to the request of the Aveyron people who had migrated to work in the cafes of Paris. The cafe owners and waiters, proud of their traditions, were keen on using their 2-piece knife in the capital. Each picnic knife is equipped with a sturdy blade stop, ensuring the protection of the blade edge when closing the knife.
