WHAT ARE FORGED BEES AND SPRINGS?

 

 

You can recognize a forged bee when you look just below it, where it meet the decorated spring. If you do not see any gaps its 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 meet the to of the spring.

 

Most Laguiole knives from all makers including Forge de Laguiole feature "soldered bees" 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.
