Petite and perfect ! The Laguiole XS, combines French tradition with technical innovation.
This small but elegantly designed sports knife incorporates a precision lock back mechanism to ensure that the blade locks securely when in use. The addition of Teflon washers will ensure that the knife action operates smoothly and securely during opening and closing.
The spring and "Bee" decoration is hand finished in our workrooms by time served skilled craftsmen who expertly create the detail with hand files and polishing techniques to give every knife that individual and handmade appeal.
The French manufacturers never paid attention to small knives, generally described as “knives for ladies or for kids”. The quality was poor. We proudly introduce the Laguiole XS 9 cm which became in several years the star of this market segment. Just like his bigger brother Laguiole “Le Pocket” 10,5 cm , the Laguiole XS 9cm provides a secure locking blade, a smooth mechanism and a solid blade stop to keep a long edge to your blade. Thanks to its small size, the Laguiole XS 9 cm is perfect for a gentleman wearing a suit or for a lady’s handbag.
