    All Metal Parts:T12. Produced exclusively for Forge de Laguiole, T12 steel combines durability, rust resistance and ease of sharpening. Although T12 will not rust it is not stainless steel, it's a unique "hybrid" metal alloy.  Forge de Laguiole's unique methods of forging, combined with tempering, give this knife a perfect cutting edge. The T12 steel comes from the Isere region of France. Beware of manufacturers that are offering 12c27 Sandvik stainless steel and are using terms like "Forged in Laguiole " (or where ever they want you to believe they are). 12c27 stainless steel is a good stainless steel, but the blades of such knives are almost always stamped from sheath metal. All Forge de Laguiole blades are forged from T12 steel rods. Stamping a blade reduce the cost of a knife's blade dramatically. More details about forging here.

    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. You can also recognize a soldered bee by noticing a straight gap where the bee meets the top of the spring. Most Laguiole knives from all makers including Forge de Laguiole feature "soldered bees" models. The process of adding the bee to the spring by soldering it saves time and money, this is why the cost of soldered bee knives can be substantially less. Fact! The original Laguiole knives had forged bees.
    What is a Chiseled bee & Spring model and why does it cost so much more than a standard forged bee?There are many reasons a Laguiole knife can cost a lot 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 of the spring and bee. Most Laguiole knives do not have a forged bee and much less have a hand chiseled spring and bee. The art of chiseling a spring & bee is time to consuming, sometimes over 1 hrs for a knife like the one here. In addition to this, only the most skilled cutter/artist are used achieve this very complicated task. The birth of a hand chiseled bee pictured below.
