1) Brown horn tip (color may vary). Horn tip is the strongest part of the horn and will never warp like inferior horn handle will.

2)  Brass bolster. Brass was widely used on the original Laguiole knives because stainless steel was not yet available. If you are looking forthe "original" look of the Laguiole of the early 1900s brass and horn tip is as close to it as you will get.

4) Shepherd's Cross: The Cross is composed of six small brass rivets inserted into the handle and laid out in the shape of a cross. Legend has it that shepherds used to plant the blade of their knife in their bread. As the knife stood up vertically it made the shape of a cross with the bread, which provided them with a focus for their prayer.
