History of the Laguiole Knife

The first Laguiole knife was made in 1828 by Mr. Moulin, a cutler in Laguiole, a village in southern France, who lent his name to the famous knife brand. Since then, the Laguiole knife has been mainly manufactured in France, in Thiers (Puy-de-Dôme), and in its original village in Aveyron.

Laguiole is not a registered trademark because it is too old. The name is in the public domain and can therefore be freely manufactured, which is why the brand suffers from numerous "fakes" from Asia. The skilled artisans of Laguiole Le Fidèle craft the knives with the utmost respect for tradition, by hand, with 170 manual operations.
