This is a Laguiole Corkscrew knife, also called a Laguiole 2 piece. 
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.

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/ridge where the bee meets the spring.

Many Laguiole pocket knives from all most manufacturers, including Forge de Laguiole (7 cm knives) offer "soldered bees" models. Most Laguiole knives found on the market 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. The original Laguiole knives had forged bees.
