The blade is made of a 10cm (12cm knife length when closed) high quality T12 steel. This was developed exclusively for the Forge de Laguiole. The special feature of this steel is the low chrome content, which makes sharpening much easier. In addition, the T12 steel scores in terms of hardness, edge retention and good resistance to rust. In the closed state, the blade floats in the resort, which protects the cutting edge.

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.

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.
