The Laguiole knives that we stock are handcrafted in Thiers, France by respected French corkscrew and knife manufacturer Vauzy-Chassange. Thiers is known as the coutellerie (cutlery) capital of France and its history as a cutlery manufacturing hub dates back to the 14th century.
Laguiole is a generic term, not a brand name, in the same way that the word “champagne” is a generic term for sparkling wine produced in the Champagne region of France. However, unlike the word “champagne”, the word “Laguiole” has never been protected. This lack of protection means that the market has been flooded with poor quality imitations manufactured outside of France using inferior techniques and materials.
