More About Chateau Laguiole
Located in France on a rocky spur over the Durolle river, the medieval houses of the Old Town section of Thiers are terraced around narrow and sloping streets.
The development of cutlery production here dates to the 15th century. Starting at this time, life in the city became tightly bound to the making of knives. Near the river lived the unskilled workers and blacksmiths, while the craftsmen and cutlery manufacturers were established in the old part of the city.
From the outset, the knife manufacturing process requires the presence of various craft corporations (a minimum of 105 operations are necessary to make a pocket knife): forging, blunting, hardening, polishing and assembly of the parts where the know how of the setter adjusting the pieces is the guarantee of the knife functioning correctly.
Each comes boxed in its own custom leather pouch. Etched "bee" emblem (Napoleon's symbol representing industry, efficiency and productivity), ensures that each piece is a genuine Chateau Laguiole. Imprinting Option available.
Please be advised that we do not carry a wide variety of these IN STOCK so the prices listed are the most current one due to the exchange rate with the euro and the position of the dollar. If you find it cheaper elsewhere it may be because they do have the products in stock and bought it at the OLD price thus they can pass along the savings but we buy when we need the items so we thought we would let you know why our prices are what they are.
