Double chiseled plates
The double chiseled plates on the top and bottom result in a finer finish with chiseling on the plates. However the double plates provide extra comfort for your grip on the Laguiole knife (the handle is thicker). Chiseling of the double plates is done by hand on a bench grinder. It is done on top and under the handle. It is possible to achieve finer chiseling (using a file or the burin): ask for a cost estimate.
