Laguiole knives have been used in the south of France for over 200 years. Jean Dubost's family— inspired by the traditional peasant tool— has been crafting the artisan blades since 1920. Surrounded by legend and myth, the Laguiole knife still carries the mark of its ancestors. The bee that is found engraved on all Laguiole products was originally part of Napoleon Bonaparte's imperial seal. Recently, the Laguiole mark has expanded to include flatware, wine waiters, and cutlery crafted with the same quality and craftsmanship. Trusted and revered in kitchens and restaurants throughout France, the Dubost family is happy for the Laguiole tradition to finally reach this side of the Atlantic.
