About this Forge de Laguiole Mont-Saint Michel Knife set
UNESCO has classed the Mont Saint-Michel as a world heritage in 1979. Second most popular tourist destination in France after the Eiffel Tower, the Mont Saint Michel Bay belongs to the very select club of the most beautiful bays in the world. As for the abbey, founded and administered by canons at the beginning of the 9th Century, it passed into the more austere hands of the Benedictine monks in the early 10th Century.
The sisters of the Monastic Fraternities of Jerusalem replaced them in 2001. The spire of its bell tower surmounted by the archangel Saint-Michel, the silhouette of its two parts (the church-abbey and the “Merveille”) is one of the two visual signatures of the French landscape.
Forge de Laguiole celebrates the 30th anniversary of its founding this year. 30 years of existence that enabled it to relaunch and perpetuate the manufacture of the most famous knife in the place of its birth: the village of Laguiole in Aubrac.
Forge de Laguiole is delighted to commemorate this anniversary event with the Mont-Saint- Michel through an exceptional knife, the “sand knife”.
Combining transition and innovation, this knife is characterized by its sand handle. The sand is extracted from the Mont St Michel bay and agglomerated with a natural resin. This unique patented process made in collaboration with Murs du Monde (http://www.mursdumonde.com ) represents a genuine first in the history of international cutlery.
This sand is taken in very small quantities within the framework of a prefectural authorization, in heavily sanded areas and therefore without any impact on the environment. Available pocket Mont Saint Michel pocket knife here.
