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 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 makes the knife more massive and thus fits very well in the hand. The complex decoration of the double plate makes it look particularly chic. A small detail, but makes compared to a single plate the special difference.
In addition, the double plate in the inner area of the handle was also decorated.
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.
