History on the Laguiole Knife – a long tradition of France.

Being manufactured in the Aveyron Region in south-west France, manufacturing of the Laguiole Style Knife dates back to around the 19th Century. Before the Laguiole knife style was created, most blades were open. These were detached knives called ‘Capouchadou’s’. Eventually, folding blades were created by forger & smith Pierre-Jean Calmels. Originally, the Spanish developed the folding knife in the 17th Century. The style, known as ‘Navajas’ (translating to mussel) was indeed shaped like a mussel and was a popular tool used across the coasts of Spain. When French Artisans travelled from the Aubrac region through Andalusia, the French discovered this style of knife and learnt its construction. This knowledge was then taken back to the Aubrac Region where the ‘Laguiole’ Knife took shape. A convenient knife that every man and woman carried at all times. Deemed popular due to being able to hide under clothes, it was the perfect tool. Years of experience has been invested into the manufacturing and development of the design, ensuring it is still as popular today as it was 300 years ago.
