Limited Edition Luxury Plated Folding Pocket Steak Knife, 4.8-in (12cm), Full Porsche Original Handle
Laguiole knives are tough and worth every penny. Apart from their exquisite beauty, their balance, performance, and stability are what sets them apart from other knives.
Laguiole cutlery-making suffered a deadly blow after the First World War when it flourished in Aubrac. A team of knife enthusiasts and elected representatives from the Aubrac region of France made sure that knife making returned to its birthplace i.e Laguiole.
The revival of local manufacturing while retaining the quintessential knife-making practices is what encouraged knife makers to set up workshops in Laguiole. By combining knowledge, innovation, and creativity, Laguiole en Aubrac has been able to put French cutlery on the world map.
Whether you are a trained chef, novice, or adventurous person, there is a Laguiole knife for everyone. Today, we will discuss the Laguiole en Aubrac Handmade Luxury Shiny Plated Folding Pocket Steak Knife.
