The Forge de Laguiole workshop opened its doors in 1987. It was the culmination of a project dreamt up by a group of enthusiasts to reinstate the manufacture of Laguiole knives in the village of Laguiole.
The design of the manufacturing site was entrusted to French designer Philippe Starck, and it is a perfection reflection of the company philosophy; to successfully combine tradition and innovation.
Once a small knife used locally, the Laguiole knife has now become a cult object, a design reference synonymous with art de vivre and French gastronomy.
The Laguiole company may be firmly rooted in ancestral know-how but has also inspired a wealth of modern talent to produce its unique collector’s pieces.
