This knife is made in France in our workshops of Laguiole le Fidèle.
It is unique and handcrafted by our expert craftsmen with 170 manual operations.
There are not only one but several rose-woods.
From "female" rosewood, perfume can be distilled. The other variety of rose-wood is regularly used in marquetry and, historically, for furniture (18th century especially) because of how magnificently it polishes up.
For the anecdote: as rosewood was originally employed in marquetry to inlay flowers into bunches of flowers, it was nicknamed "tulipwood".
The French name "bois de rose" is more closely inspired by its colour and its delightful sweet aromatic smell.
It is a very fine-grained regular wood that polishes up beautifully and will doubtlessly charm amateurs of beautiful objects.
It is also a very heavy and hard wood. The sculptor had better use well honed tools to carve it!
