Discover La Coutellerie de Laguiole

La Coutellerie & Forges Honoré Durand is a family business based in Laguiole, recognized as a Living Heritage Company and Art Workshop that perpetuates the tradition of excellence.

A Master Craftsman surrounded by knifemakers and blacksmiths, guardians of the know-how of the true Laguiole, offers you the most beautiful range of knives in the wider context of tableware extended to "mythical" accessories such as the Laguiole wine opener or the letter openers.

A production of tradition because we have an history that we claim in    our museum and that we share through knifemaking courses.
