Genuine dishwasher safe 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: the "white pearly" handle material is made of methacrylate, a synthetic resin which has the advantage of being extremely resistant (it is used to produce aircraft canopies) and thus water resistant too. The polymer is firmly riveted in the steel structure between to shiny brass bolsters. The whole steel has a shiny finish.
It makes it a genuine Laguiole Steak knife water resistant, easy to wash in a dishwasher or by hand, and maintain. The spring is chiseled. They 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: Dishwasher safe, White pearly collection is very easy to maintain. The brass will acquire a patina with time. This is natural and many amateurs will keep the patina on purpose to provide this ancestral time feeling. However, it's easy to let brass shine again with soap on a very soft fabric or let it bath in white vinegar.
