The Chateau Laguiole Freemason was created to celebrate the one of us that believe in the existence of a supreme being and in the immortality of the soul. The black and white checkered handle design symbolizes the checkered floor found in some lodges. The white and black tiles are a symbol of good and evil.
The Chateau Laguiole Grand Cru series was created to satisfy the need for a stylish and more durable wine opener. This model has the same characteristic as the classic but is more suitable for professional use (20/50 bottles per day). The reason for the added strength resides in the massif front top bolster, the part where the screw enters the handle.
