The Laguiole knife (French pronunciation: [laɡjɔl], locally [lajɔl]) is a high-quality traditional Occitan pocket-knife, originally produced in the town of Laguiole in the Aveyron region of southern France.
The word laguiole is a generic term, not legally restricted to any one company or place of manufacture. Such knives are produced by a number of unrelated companies in southern France, with some 70% of production coming from Thiers, a long-established centre of the cutlery industry.
Laguiole knives are manufactured by more than 30 different companies in France; quality and style vary. Coutellerie Neron ( a third generation manufacturer), is considered one of the best knife manufacturers in France. The Neron Laguiole cutlery brings a touch of sophistication and style to your table. High quality is an integral part of their production to provide consumers with the assurance of long lasting use.
The laguiole cutlery, masterfully crafted from high grade 18/10 stainless steel, is stamped, ground and then polished; each handle features the trademark "bee", stainless steel bolsters, five-rivet construction and polypropylene resin for extra durability and maintenance free use. Each item is dishwasher safe.
