The quality of the steel, the triangular grinding and the polishing will make it easier for you to keep your knives sharp and ensure that they continue to cut true. The springs and blades are put in a kiln heated to over 1,000°, before being rapidly cooled. Depending on the part (spring, blade, etc.) and its makeup (carbon steel, stainless steel), the tempering varies (temperature, oil / water / air, etc.). The tempered parts (here the springs) are plunged into an oil bath in order to give them strength and flexibility. The blades are then 'marbled/billées', controlling the hardness expressed on the Rockwell scale (HRC). Our Swedish 12C27 Sandvik stainless steel blades have a hardness of 56 HRC. All our springs are forged and chased ('guilloched') with a file in a vice. They all have a blade-stop. All the bees are filed twice: before assembly and before the quality control stage. All our blades are very carefully ground and polished twice with buffalo hide by professionals: this guarantees outstanding quality and a fine cutting edge for you. The LAGUIOLE added extra: express after-sales service - secure delivery - numbered certificate of authenticity LAGUIOLE handmade guarantee, with certificate of authenticity LAGUIOLE Collection - Handmade - Handcrafted in Auvergne. These Laguiole knives, handcrafted by Fontenille Pataud, which has been producing them since the 1920s, are available to you in

I had one in the past and was foolish enough to loose it. I finally got around to buying this one and just couldn't be happier with the purchase. You have to weed out the cheap copies and get to this mfr. I was still worried until I got the knife. It's hand made and the quality is just fantastic. I'm not a knife expert but I do know this type of knife and they're a lot of knock offs. So like all else fit and finish as well as construction symmetry are the key features. Materials are next and the ebony is spot on on this knife. The blade is hand ground to perfection and very meaty. The finish and edge are just great. I was introduced to this particular French regional knife as a young boy by my grandfather. He was always loping off something in the garden or at the table he would pull out that knife to slice up a banana for my cereal. I now am a proud grandfather and my granddaughter just loves to sit with me in the garden as i use my fantastic new knife exactly as my grandfather did...
Love this elegant Laguiole folding knife - I use it as a steak knife. It works like a dream. This is not knock-off or replica of this legendary brand. Highly recommended
