As everyone knows, France is world-renowned for its magnificent cheeses - Camembert, Roquefort, Cantal, Tomme de Savoie, Comté, Roquefort, Chèvre... the list goes on and on. And no French dinner is really complete without a selection of wonderful cheeses, which are always served at the end of the meal, always accompanied by bread and wine, and always presented on a serving plate with specialized cutlery (cheese knives). There are few things as quintessentially French as a good set of Laguiole cheese knives.
These beautiful, heirloom-quality cheese knives are handmade by highly skilled artisans in the vicinity of Laguiole (region of Aubrac) in accordance with the region's knife-making traditions. Each knife is a work of art. The blades are made of Sandvik 12C27 high performance knife steel, which allows for razor sharpness, high hardness, exceptional toughness and excellent corrosion resistance.
We stock cheese knives with handles made of water buffalo horn, cow bone, and olive wood, but we can make cheese knives with handles made from a wide variety of materials (contact us for information on custom cheese knife orders).
Each set is handmade by a single craftsman. Exquisitely shaped and perfectly balanced, with a design that has been refined by generations of artisans, these knives will be in your family for generations as well.
