Manufacture of Laguiole knives 100% French
Fabrication de couteaux laguiole 100% Français
Our workshop is located in Espalion, a town 23 km from Laguiole. Laguiole Village was born from the collaboration of two people: F Blandinieres, with more than 40 years of experience in the field of aeronautics, and C Capelle, co-founder of a famous Laguiole brand, more than 25 years ago.
From the start, Laguiole Village opted for creation and innovation. The Laguiole pieces are cut with water and sand, an ecological process that allows great manufacturing flexibility and above all a better quality of assembly. This type of process also allows the creation of new models. We have thus embarked on the creation of many knives: the Espalion, the Antartica, the Loki, the Vintage and the youngest the Erwall. The Espalion is the company's hometown knife. The shape of its handle is inspired by the city's Old Bridge.
The Antarctica was made in partnership with Jean-Louis Etienne, the great French explorer. Indeed, the explorer set up the Polar Pod mission in Antarctica. The Laguiole Village cutlers were inspired by the Marvel universe for the Loki. The Vintage is a nod to the retro years. And the Erwall is the emblematic knife of Stade Toulousain.
Laguiole Village has filed a patent, it is the first cutlery and the only one to manufacture the table knife with the forged bee. Admittedly, the folding Laguiole knife with the forged bee has existed for a very long time, but no cutlery had yet taken up this challenge for the table Laguiole.
