Laguiole Picnic Guilloché Range White Mammoth ivory - L12TMBLTG
The traditional Laguiole knife with corkscrew signed by Gilles® is a high-end Laguiole knife: solid balde-stop, forged bee and 12C27 stainless steel blade, this Laguiole knife is proudly handmade in France.
Our specialty: Personalize your knife (first name, initials, date...) with a beautiful engraving of the spring produced by a professional engraver. The engraving is performed before the file work (guillochage) and the heat treatment.
Hand chiseled and forged spring
The traditional bee is solid and forged into the spring. The spring and bee are then hand-chased with a file : This denotes artisan quality, unlike inexpensive mass market products that have welded springs and are machine decorated.
