Some countries are famous for their mastering of particular arts and crafts, but when it comes to traditional cutlery, the French region of Laguiole wears the crown with pride.

Originally, Laguiole folding knives were not considered the luxury items that they are today. They were simply tools carried by shepherds and often used in prayer, as suggested by the subtle cross formation, known as the Shepherd’s Cross or Rosary, upon the handle.

There really is more to these fascinating knives than meets the eye. For example, every blade’s spring is hand-engraved to depict a horsefly or bee, a symbol of immortality and resurrection, said to have been granted to soldiers of the Laguiole region by Napoleon for their bravery. This bee, along with the decorative spring, is forged from a single piece of metal, while each knife is made from start to finish by a single cutler.

Finished in solid, genuine horn, this folding knife is more than a tool: it’s a precious treasure to carry with you for a lifetime.
