The Forge de Laguiole workshop opened its doors in 1987. It was the culmination of a project dreamt up by a group of enthusiasts, including politicians and local business people, to reinstate the manufacture of Laguiole knives in the village of Laguiole. Every stage of the knife manufacture is now carried out again in its place of origin. From the outset, Forge de Laguiole has worked to develop its manufacturing skills with respect for traditional know-how. Once a small knife used locally, the Laguiole knife has now become a cult object, a design reference synonymous with art de vivre and French gastronomy.
As part of its collection, Forge de Laguiole offers a variety of traditional table knives with a fixed blade and a finely decorated bee. The knife handles are available with corrosion resistant polished brass bolsters or with matte or polished stainless steel bolsters. The designer knives, with contemporary clean lines and an understated elegance are created by the best French architects and designers.
