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.

This knife can be personalized on the blade. Same-day engraving if ordered by 2 pm EST. We offer two engraving types.
Diamond drag engraving will create a very subtle engraving that has no color, this is a jeweler's type engraving.
Laser marking will create a mark that is more noticeable than diamond drag.
The dark mark is fused into the metal and will never come off. Visit our engraving portfolio here to view examples of personalization.

Hand wash only, do not immerse in water. We Recommend the use of Tuf-Glide Oil Free Lubricant 1/4 oz Pen. Periodically place a couple drops of lubricant on the axle of all moving parts. More details here - $8.95
