LAGUIOLE KNIVES

These legendary knives from Laguiole, France are as quintessentially French as that bottle of wine in your cupboard. First designed in 1829 by Jean-Pierre Calmels, these Occitane-styled pocket knives are known for their slim, elegant shape and the forged bee that rests atop the locking mechanism. 
Commonly used by the shepherds and farmers of Southern France, the style of knife has it's roots in the 'Navaja Fighting Knife'  that was carried by the Moors in Southern Spain.
