Hand made by Jean Dubost this Laguiole folding pocket knife with 200 year old olive wood handle and wine opener presented with a sharpening steel and leather sheath in an open wooden gift box.
The blade is made of high-grade stainless steel, is stamped, then ground and then polished in over 25 different manual production stages. Soft and subtle to the touch, a Laguiole knife will stay sharp and will never rust. The Laguiole knife has been used in the south of France for over 200 years. Jean Dubost's family, inspired by the traditional peasant tool, has been crafting the artisan blades since 1920. Surrounded by legend and myth, the Laguiole knife still carries the mark of its ancestors. A bee that is found engraved on all Laguiole products, was originally part of Napoleon Bonaparte's imperial seal. A knife that will be handed down to the next generation.
