This Laguiole en Aubrac 7 cm pocket knife is a classic Laguiole knife. The handle is made from horn. The spine of the handle is decorated with stunning filework. The blade is made from stainless Sandvik 12C27 steel. Both the bolsters and the blade are polished.
You open this Laguiole knife with two hands. When opened, a slip joint holds the blade in place. This is not a true lock, merely some resistance to keep the knife from closing. When closing the knife, it is important that you carefully lower the blade into the handle. If don't do this carefully, the blade will hit the inside of the handle, which could affect the sharpness of the blade.
Laguiole en Aubrac knives are made with love. The handle of this classic French pocket knife naturally features the characteristic bee. This handmade pocket knife has a slender appearance. Because of the manual labour and the natural materials used, each pocket knife is unique.
Please be aware that materials like horn have natural variations. The knife you receive may therefore be subtly different from the product photos. The model and type of material, however, will always be the same. This means all the knives are unique, which is of course what makes them so special.

Having always carried a pocket knife since a young boy i was looking for something a bit smaller than my Trevor Abblet Barlow. This Laguiole en Aubrac seemed to fit what i was looking for so ordered price was a bit high but it looked good. Tried to track it was 3 days moving between depots in Germany. When arrived it was well packed, first impression was good looked the part, till i picked it up the scales did not line up with the bolsters or linings you can feel the edge of joint when in the hand. On opening the blade there was no edge to the blade just a bur took 10 mins to get a paper cut edge. I decided to keep knife as i liked the look and size i will work on it myself and get it how it should be. Over priced for the quality anb finishing. British knives for me.
Thank you for your review.
These are all handmade knives so every knive is different. If you are looking for a well finished knife this is probably not going to satisfy you indeed.
However if you are looking for a nice classy looking gentlemens folder with a decent price this is a good choice.
For feature puposes, we do offer a free return when the item has not been used or sharpened yet.
