Centuries ago, during the medieval time, the knives were distinctly sharp to be used to pick up food. At that time, forks were not yet a widespread utensil. Guests thus brought their own knife when invited for meals. It was only later on that those bladed equipments were introduced as tools specifically crafted to cut meat. Presently, the French steak knives are one of the best on the market due to their excellent efficiency and their delicate designs. The premium Laguiole blades are impeccably sharp and offer a precise and easy cut. This type of high-grade cutlery, which is entirely handcrafted by professional knife makers, is elegant and manufactured in superior materials. By flicking through our online catalogue, Fontenille Pataud, you will find a wide range of French steak knives, including the Laguiole, Le Thiers, the Capuchadou and other high-class cutleries.
