Choose your knife's handle material

Besides the fact that people have different tastes, the choice of the handle material can be influenced by the fact that the future knife holder is careful or not.

  • The most fragile materials are horntip, horn, stag wood and bone.
  • The wood are generaly stronger.
  • Massive stainless steel or aluminium handles have an ideal resistance for people with a very untidy nature or activities such as fishing.

Wood is a natural material, so we pick the most beautiful pieces. This include wooden handle that does not fit exactly the picture - photo.

Customize your knife's blade and spring

You can choose the steel for your Laguiole knife:

Generally our Laguiole knives have a Sandvik stainless steel blade (reference number 12C27) which is currently the best one.
For the same price you can also ask for the traditional carbon steel blade which has the characteristic of becoming oxidized.
Also the new Sandvik stainless steel, reference number 14C28N
You can also ask for personalized engravings on the blade or the spring (name, firstname, initials).

The chiselling of the spring with forged massive bee is not necessarily that from the picture-photo. This is according to the inspiration of Cutler and there is about 8 different chiselling.
