Details

Forged from stainless steel in the Aubrac region of southern France, the couteau de Laguiole or Laguiole pocketknife has been proudly carried by farmers and merchants alike for almost 200 years.

The detailed, handworked olive-wood handle holds a corkscrew and razor-sharp folding blade that will last for a lifetime of adventure.

The bee motif on the leather case is a symbol of Napoleon, but some say the image is actually a cattle fly and alludes to farmers who first used the knives in the 1800s in Laguiole village.

It is said the corkscrew was added to the design years later at the demand of local waiters.

"Excellent Knife"

Excellent knife for cutting and slicing fruit, vegetables, cheese, and meats as well as general cutting duties. The case and sharpener are perfect accompaniments. Great quality materials and edge holding ability.

"French Laguiole Knife"

I didn't know how to close the blade. It just needs pressure. The blade is very stable when it is opened. No motion or tendency to close accidently. It came NOT sharp. Please send knives sharpened. I got it razor sharp with a knife grinder and the Lansky system.
