Forged from stainless steel in the Aubrac region of southern France, the couteau de Laguiole or Laguiole pocketknife has been proudly carried by farmers and merchants alike for almost 200 years.


The detailed, handworked olive-wood handle holds a corkscrew and razor-sharp folding blade that will last for a lifetime of adventure.


The bee motif on the leather case is a symbol of Napoleon, but some say the image is actually a cattle fly and alludes to farmers who first used the knives in the 1800s in Laguiole village.


It is said the corkscrew was added to the design years later at the demand of local waiters.


  • 8''L open; 4''L folded
  • Crowned with brass ends
  • Sharpening steel included
  • Leather case and elegant box included

      Comments about French Laguiole Knife:

      I didn't know how to close the blade. It just needs pressure. The blade is very stable when it is opened. No motion or tendency to close accidently. It came NOT sharp. Please send knives sharpened. I got it razor sharp with a knife grinder and the Lansky system.

          The French village of Laguiole in the southern Aubrac region has been home to an artisanal knifemaking industry since 1829. Styles have evolved, but each is still made by hand from start to finish by a single craftsman. This knife features a pressed-horn handle with brass bolsters encasing the stainless-steel blade.

          The iconic navy and white stripes of our French Mariner Sweater is based on a pattern originally intended for deep sea fishermen in Breton, but that has since been adopted by seafarers and yachtsmen across the ages. The sweaters were originally worn by “marchand d’ail,” sellers of garlic and onions who sailed from Brittany to England with their wares. Eventually the French Navy adopted the tight-knit wool design, but only sailors and new recruits wore stripes—officers alone were permitted to wear solid colors.

          When the Helle brothers began making knives in 1932 in Holmedal, Norway, production was entirely by hand because the village had no electricity. While much has changed in 80 years, traditional craftsmen’s skills endure. This outdoorsman’s knife is handcrafted of triple-laminated stainless steel with a drop point blade. The handle is made of curly birch, antler, and leather.

          In the early decades of the 20th century, art nouveau gave jewelers the opportunity to express themselves as artists. They drew inspiration from the natural world, especially the shapes of leaves and petals. These lightweight accents are stamped using 100-year-old molds from the art nouveau era. Made in France from “old silver,” or silver-plated copper, with blue Swarovski crystals.
