It is with its beautiful box of six knives that opens the “table collection” signed
Christian Ghion. With its characteristic handle with a length of 13 centimeters that
extends in a perfectly harmonious curve, a beautiful stainless steel blade (Z40C13)
10 centimeters long and three millimeters thick.
Barely tapering the blade at the tip, slightly softening the counter edge line
and drawing inspiration from his folding model, the designer offers a particularly
success of the traditional FORGE DE LAGUIOLE table knife.
A collection for the table by Christian GHION for FORGE de LAGUIOLE
The year 2008 had seen the success of the “folding” specially created by Christian Ghion
for the LAGUIOLE FORGE.
It is the handle that constitutes the common point uniting all the elements
of this superb collection which successfully combines the elegant authenticity of the product
of heritage and the contemporary refinement of the design object.
Indeed, made in a beautiful dark horn with a shiny finish, this one has a single
and same dimension, 13 centimeters, whatever the destination of the cutting edge considered.
Thanks to its design with a very balanced arc that stabilizes the grip,
this handle adapts to all blade lengths and all uses.
Front bolsters, rear bolsters in stainless steel protects the extremities and reinforces the solidity,
while a smooth pyramid-shaped fly signs each of the copies of this reminder
identity specific to Laguiole.*
*This detail alone, it should be remembered, cannot ensure the authenticity of the provenance,
that only guarantees the certificate of origin provided with the knife and the engraved inscription
on the blade.
