This piece also features the traditional shepherd cross found on most high-end traditional Laguiole cutlery and a decorated spring top and bee.Handmade in the village of Laguiole, France Forge de Laguiole knives are truly and by far of the highest quality offer in the market today. Additionally, each one of this master piece is entirely handmade by the same craftsman to insure pride in the completed piece.

    This is a "Laguiole 2 Piece". Here is a little history: The corkscrew was added to the Laguiole knife in the 1880s. This addition was the result of the sale of corked wine bottles in urban society, but also in response to the request by the people of Aveyron who had left to find work in the cafes of Paris. Cafe owners and waiters were to remain loyal to their traditions and were proud to use their 2-piece knife in the capital.

    The Forge de Laguiole workshop is located in the village of Laguiole, France where the Laguiole knife was invented in the early 1800s. More about Laguiole knives' history here.

  • Size: 12 cm / 4: 5/8 in (closed) 21.7 cm / 8.5/8 in (open)
    Weight: 3 oz - 84 g
    Wood Origin: India
    Blade, Spring & Bee: T12 steel. Produced exclusively for Forge de Laguiole, T12 steel combines durability, rust resistance and ease of sharpening. Forge de Laguiole's unique methods of forging, combined with tempering, give this cutter a perfect cutting edge. The T12 steel comes from the Isere region of France.
    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 spring. Many Laguiole knives from all makers and prices offer "soldered" bees" models, most Laguiole knives found anywhere are solder bee 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.
