Pocket knife from France Midi-Pyrénées - Laguiole Cader wood with corkscrew
Elegant and versatile: Midi-Pyrénées - Laguiole Cader wood with corkscrewThe very first version of the now well-known Laguiole was created around 1830 by the couturier Pierre-Jean Calmels. First produced only in Laguiole, the knifesmiths in Thiers discovered the charm of this type. They changed the actually straight form of the handle into an elegant sweeping line. A distinctive trademark of Laguiole is also the "Mouche" (fly or bee) at the end of the slightly widened resort. Originally a part of the lock, today it is a purely decorative element.
The Laguiole typical front and rear cheeks were also added to Thiers, since the local Couteliers had the necessary tools. The astonishingly elegant appearance for a rugged knife is rounded off by the narrow blade with a curved cutting surface and centered tip made of 12C27 stainless steel. On the back she is subtly guilloched (punched).
The polished stainless steel jaws at both ends stabilize the handle, in addition to the mounting rivets, the handles are provided with an ornament of five smaller rivets, the so-called "shepherd's cross". As a treat for the wine lover there is a corkscrew on the back of the handle, which is ergonomically cleverly integrated with a small gutter and ends in a rounded tip.
