Shaping the Handle
| The handle of the Laguiole knife can be shaped from a variety of materials
The most traditional handles are made of wood, horn or bon, the rarer ones from mother of pearl, coral, ivory and even mammoth tooth. The knife with a Snake wood handle (to the left) is particularly elegant. After the initial cutting in the sawing workshop, each side is shaped adjusted perfectly feet against the liners. For Forge de Laguiole, such precision is a sign of our commitment to quality.
From lumber to plates, to handle...
The Forge de Laguiole has its own workshop for sawing the knives.
