The Laguiole Knife - Woodworking
The residents of Laguiole in France maintain that Napoleon gave them the exclusive right to make this knife because of their bravery in battle. The residents of Thiers (the knife capital of France) disagreed, so these knives, with the decorated back and the traditional bee as a thumb rest, have been made in both places since. The shape and decoration are highly traditional. The components used in the knife are brass, rosewood and stainless steel (#12C27 stainless, an improved grade over 440 stainless).

The classic shape fits the hand beautifully. Because of its size (8" open, 4-3/8" closed), it was even used as a dinner knife by travellers in earlier times. Rich in history, this is a delightful knife to own and use. A fitted leather belt case with snap closure is available.
