Coutellerie de Laguiole Honoré durand

La Coutellerie de Laguiole workshopOur traditional handcrafting workshop of Laguiole welcomes you.

Certainly one of the best hand manufacturer of Laguiole knives

"In our workshops, the craftsman makes the knife from A to Z entirely by hand. On the contrary, mass production supposes the use of robots to pre-form and pre-adjust series of parts as well as the recourse to unskilled workers who are submitted to high output rhythms".

La Coutellerie de Laguiole' welcomes you on its location and opens its doors wide for your visit.
The Coutellerie de Laguiole is the only traditional workmanship enterprise in France which produces up-market products without the help of subcontractors.
The Durand Company, it is a family passion, the passion for the Laguiole knife.
 -  Damascus steel forging,
 -  burin engraving,
 -  handles sculpting,
 -  Bees forged in the block as in the old days, ...
Thanks to its rewarded experience, our workshops offer a range of classical models respectful of the history, the legends and the traditions of the Aubrac region.
Contrary to what one can figure out, even in Laguiole, the manufacturers are rare.
