The prestige of craftsmanship
Our family business has one blacksmith who works with Damascus steel.
Our traditional craftsmanship is a combination of two key professions:
- the knifemaker’s trade (assembly and fashioning of the knife)
- and the blacksmith’s trade (making the blades, springs, etc.).
In the blacksmith’s trade, we have a specialty: we produce our own Damascus steel, a steel composed of layers and with unique patterns.
These are the different steps involved in producing our Damascus steel – it all starts out with the steel strips and ends with the finished product.
It is because of this lengthy process that our traditional craftsmanship can guarantee that every Laguiole is a unique object.
