This small 3.5" handle slip joint Laguiole knife is our best seller by far. its compact size makes it easy to carry in a front pocket or purse and the 3" blade keeps it legal to carry in most states. The brass bolsters offer a nice contrast with most handle material as well. An important feature worth mentioning is the "forged bee" construction. Unlike most bargain Laguiole knife the bee of this knife is not soldered but is an integral part of the spring (decorated top part). Each one of these masterpieces is entirely handmade by the same craftsman to ensure pride in the completed piece.
