HISTORY

The Laguiole knife is a high-quality traditional Occitan pocket-knife, originally produced in the “knife-city” of Thiers where 70% of the French cutting tool production comes from, and in the small village of Laguiole, both located in the Massif central region of France. Laguiole became associated with a specific shape of a traditional knife common to this area.

Aubrac is a small village in the southern Massif Central of France. Heritage of the Auvergne volcanoes bequeathed to the former Rouergue region, the Aubrac plateau stretches over the southern Massif Central straddling the departments of Aveyron, Lozere and Cantal. Its landscapes alternate between extensive pastures and deep beech forests. An eternal nature still prevails endowing it with an exceptional floristic richness with more than 1000 species of plants, some of which are very rare.

Laguiole en Aubrac guarantees artisanal manufacturing of its products in the historic area of Laguiole and they are attested by the LOG stamp (Laguiole Origine Garantie) engraved on the heel of the blade.
