A guarantee of origin and authenticity


We are located on the Aubrac plateau, in the village of Laguiole.

We have the two professions in our company that are needed for producing a Laguiole knife:

- blacksmith

- knifemaker

You will find both professions mentioned on our Certificate of Guarantee.

Features that attest to authenticity and quality 

Come and visit us in Laguiole and learn about these professions on-site.


Just as in the food sector, a Certificate of Guarantee provides traceability for your Laguiole.


A proper Certificate of Guarantee must give:

  •          the name of the manufacturer
  •          and their address, phone number and email address => this must be in Laguiole
  •          and finally it must state that it is a manufacturer: with the professions of blacksmith and knifemaker.

So wherever you buy your Laguiole, ask for the Certificate of Guarantee.

A guarantee for the types of steel offered  

We always offer the traditional blade, which oxidizes and gives food a slight taste of steel.

This type of steel is called carbon steel.

It is mainly made from iron and from carbon (0.6% to 1%).
Further details here.


In the case of modern steels, these are blades that stay clean (no oxidization) and that do not leave food tasting of steel. 

This type of steel is called stainless steel.

It is an alloy that varies depending on which grade is requested:

  •          carbon (ensuring hardness: from 0.2% to 0.5%)
  •          chrome (ensures rustproof properties: between 1.3% and 15%)

We choose our stainless steel from among the very best steels currently supplied by the steel producer Sandvik.

For most of our Laguiole knives, we offer a choice between

  •          classic 12C27 stainless steel
  •          the newer 14C28 stainless steel.

Where personalized Laguiole knives are concerned, we have another specialist profession: forging Damascus steel.

This steel is made using the method of layered or hot-worked steel.

Legal notice:

French and European standards define stainless steel as food-grade if it contains a minimum of 13% chromium.
