Laguiole Arbalète Genès David is considered one of the oldest knife makers in France. This is because the Arbalete brand was registered in 1810 under the direction of Napoleon and is based in Tiers.

The Laguiole knives are forged by the craftsmen in the traditional way, joined and last of all polished and finished with dedication after more than one hundred processes.  This unique and outstanding expertise has been recognized. The Arbalete Genès David was awarded in 2013 with the label the living heritage (EPV).

This certificate confirms that the Arbalete forge manufactures its Laguiole knives according to the ancient savoir-faire tradition. The Arbalete forge is also awarded with the ” Origine France Garantie” certificate. This certificate confirms that the Arbalete Gene David manufactures the original Laguiole knives in France in his own workshop in Saint-Remy- sur- Durolle in the Puy -de-Dôme.


The blade is made of 11cm (12cm knife length when closed) 12c27 Sandvik – Swedish chrome steel. This high quality steel has high hardness, good corrosion resistance and excellent wear resistance. The knife has been equipped with a blade guard, which allows the blade to float in the closed position.


This Laguiole knife has two bolsters. The combination of the processed bolsters with the noble material for the handle scales makes the Laguiole knife unique.


At the spring adorns the famous bee, also partially recognized as a fly. This is forged with the spring in one piece. This is one of the hallmarks of a high quality original Laguiole pocket knife. In addition, the ornaments of the master cutler are applied to the nib by hand. Each master cutler has his own distinctive patterns which also distinguishes his signature.


This knife has a double plate and is therefore very massive in the hand due to the widening of the handle. The double plate was also guilloched very fine and detailed. It complements the ornaments on the nib. The guilloche is a goldsmith’s work and decorates the front of the nib with unique ornaments. This is also the signature of the master cutler.

The combination of brass and inox of the double plate makes the knife look very elegant and noble.


The handle scales are made of noble material carefully selected by the master cutler. The handle scales are finally finely polished with high-quality oils and waxes.

On the left side of the handle scales is the well-known traditional shepherd’s cross. Finally, the handle scales are finely polished with high-quality oils and waxes.


You will receive an unlimited lifetime warranty and free repair service when you purchase this knife. This warranty is provided only when the Laguiole knife is used for its intended purpose. Improper handling will void the knife’s warranty.


Original certificate, natural wood gift box.
