Forge de Laguiole

Laguiole 12 cm Straight Handle Lucky Knife Replica

The Lucky Knife is a replica of a "Laguiole Droit" (“straight Laguiole”) first developed by Pierre Jean Calmels in 1829. The “mouche”, which translates as “fly” but is known as the bee is a technical term. Of course, the "Bee" is what most of us assume Laguiole knives have, but interestingly enough many early models like this one did not have a bee but had four leaves clover.

The same goes for the shepherd cross, some models, like this one simply did not have it. This numbered edition knife is limited to 365 units. This unique 12 cm full handle folding knife was entirely handcrafted by the most skilled craftsman from the Forge de Laguiole. The spring and four leaves clover are chiseled from one forged metal piece (see tab below). The full handle of this pocket is made from genuine cattle bone, each bone plate is soaked in tea for 24 hrs to give its aged patina. 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.
