Laguiole Knives - Is it a bee or a fly?

The story makes for interesting reading. The Laguiole knife used to have a so-called “mouche”, which translates as “fly” but is known as the bee. The bee was the small piece of triangular or oval shaped metal, sometimes with a ring, which you needed to pull up to allow the blade to close. Today, on the forced notch of the Laguiole, the bee no longer has a functional role. But it is still there as a decoration, as a testament to the technical feature of its origins.  

The Laguiole knife has traditionally been given as a gift, previously held on to or handed down. From generation to generation, and from a friend to friend - in exchange for a coin so as not to break the friendship. In the process, a whole series of memories are passed from pocket to pocket, and from imagination to imagination.
