    What is a One Piece Forged Bee & Spring?
    When a bee is an integral part of the forged spring, it is called a "Forged Bee"; the bee was not added afterward.
    Many Laguiole pocket knives from most manufacturers, including Forge de Laguiole (i.e., 7 cm knives), offer "soldered bees" models. The process of adding the bee to the spring by soldering saves time and money; this is why the cost of soldered bee Laguiole knives can be substantially less. The original Laguiole knives had forged bees.

    How do I recognize a Forged Bee & Spring?
    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/ridge where the bee meets the spring.
