Every stage of the knife manufacture is now carried out again in its place of origin. The making of Laguiole knives has returned to Laguiole.
The design of the manufacturing site was entrusted to French designer Philippe Starck, and it's a perfection reflection of the company philosophy: to successfully combine tradition and innovation. Starck's architectural vision uses glass and aluminum, and features an 18m high gleaming blade soaring into the sky above Laguiole, a symbol of the activity and dynamism of the company.
Our expertise in forging our knives is drawn from the very soul of the Aubrac plateau - our inspiration. 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.
This is the trademark that guarantees the origin of our products:
The logo is exclusive and attests that our knives were manufactured by Forge de Laguiole.
This exclusive knife has been inspired from the Airbus A350XWB that is the most design and technological actual airliner. The knife is produced in series with a “Manufacturer Serial Number”. Each knife is numbered and sold in a white box with a authenticity certificate.
At the dawn of the twentieth century, an artisan cutler from Laguiole manufactured in his small workshop a folding knife with right handle and a corbin beak adorned with a "clover four leaves" fly. He is today quoted in many books devoted to french folding knives.Numbered knife in limited serie, delivered in gift box with certificate of authenticity
