How to choose your Laguiole knife?
With or without a corkscrew?
First, you need to know if you want a 1 piece Laguiole knife (single knife with blade)
or a 2-piece Laguiole knife (knife with blade and corkscrew).
The original knife was a simple knife with a blade. Purists often prefer this version
because the shape of the Laguiole knife is preserved with purity.
Historically, the corkscrew was added to the knife around 1880 following the move to Paris of the Rouergats to work as lemonade makers.
It is therefore important to think about whether or not the corkscrew is useful because the grip on the knife is less good than with a simple knife.
The size of the Laguiole knife.
It is possible to choose several knife sizes ranging from 8 to 14 cm.
Please note that the size mentioned represents the size of the closed knife.
For example :
A 10 cm Laguiole knife will have a handle of 10 cm, a blade of 8.4 cm and therefore a total size of 18.4 cm
A 12cm knife will have a 12cm handle, a 12cm blade, a 10cm blade and a total length of 22cm.
The 10 cm knife will often be used as a pocket knife. It is often associated with a more feminine knife.
The usual size is that of the 12 cm knife. This is an ideal size for use as a table knife.
Finally, larger sizes are for larger hands !!
How to recognize a real Laguiole knife handcrafted in the area of origin ?
Laguiole is the name of a village located in the Aubrac region of France. Laguiole knives have been made there since the 19th century.
After the First World War, cutlery workshops in Thiers began making Laguiole knives. Some starting to manufacture knives industrially.
This is why today it is important to differentiate between a good Laguiole knife and a bad Laguiole knife.
