The Grand Cru series of Chateau Laguiole were created by transforming the Classics series into a stylish and modern design, with beveled brass at both endings of the handle. Thus, those wider beveled brasses made them even more durable openers, for heavy duty use.
This specific model's handle is made of Snakewood (Brosimum guianense), highly enhanced by the beveled shiny brasses at both extremities. Snakewood is a fascinating and magnificent wood which originates mostly in the northeast cost of South America. The heartwood has been used for its construction. Snakewood name comes from its typical snakeskin like patterns, and it has the specificity to get its initial deep red color to change when exposed to air, which makes the wood eventually turn reddish brown as it is when assembling this Chateau Laguiole. As a rare and small tree, snakewood is perhaps the most expensive exotic tree.
