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.
