The traditional closing system of the laguiole is the slipjoint system

  • In the open position, the head of the spring is locked in the notch of the heel of the blade to block and thus prevent the blade from closing without intention on your part.
  • To close the knife, you must apply pressure to the blade to release it and thus be able to slowly return the blade to the closed position.

Watch our video explaining how to properly open and close your Laguiole knife.

Respect these gestures and your knife will keep its edge because the blade will not slam on the spring.
