Laguiole steak knife
Laguiole is not a brand but a shape and an appellation of a traditional French knife adorned with a mythical bee. Even though it was first created in the village of Laguiole, dating back 1829, the cutlers from the city of Thiers nearby became after the first World War the main producers of this famous knife. Claude Dozorme, Master cutler of Thiers established in 1902, was the first in France to transform the famous folding Laguiole knife into a steak knife with a fixed blade.
Claude Dozorme's Laguiole steak knives blade and handle are made in one piece of stainless steel X50CrMoV15. Combined with Dozorme grinding mastering, this very high quality steel gives the knives an excellent cutting edge, a very good hold and an easy re-sharpening of the blades.
Model handle: Olive wood harvested on the shores of the Mediterranean sea. Olive wood shows magnificent grains and patterns. The warmth of precious woods is exceptional. No two knives are exactly the same: each tree is unique, each piece of wood will have various veins, patterns or color. That's what makes traditional Laguiole knives unique. Your models will probably therefore have different patterns or colors than those on our photos. But we guarantee you they're all beautiful.
The olive wood handle is plain, with no bolsters to focus on the beauty its grain. Plain handle models have also a plain spring to keep the knife harmony (no chiseling). The knives come with their nice wooden gift box.
Band: Claude Dozorme, Master Cutler of Thiers, France, since 1902.
We Like: All stages of manufacture are integrated in Claude Dozorme wokshops, which guarantees knives craft of very high quality, 100% made in France.
We Recommend: do not use dish-washer. Prolonged water contact will crack precious woods and horns. Hand-wash the blade with a sponge, hot water and detergent if needed. If the handle need to be washed, used a humid fabric to remove what mus be removed. From time to time you can nourish the wood with beeswax. Check our dish-washer safe Laguiole knives section if you prefer that ease of care.
