Why is there a bee on Laguiole knives?
Each knife features a bee or fly decoration on the bolster. This is not only a nod to Laguiole’s heritage, but also strengthens the knife itself.
Some say Napoleon awarded the use of a bee in recognition of Laguiole’s support for the emperor, or for their bravery. However, the stories are disputed and perhaps lost with time…
How do I know I have a genuine Laguiole knife?
In Laguiole en Aubrac knives, the bee is forged as one piece with the blade on all their cooking knives. Each blade is also hand-engraved at the spring and hand-decorated on the awl and spring plate.
These knives are some of the finest examples of Laguiole artistry.
The origin of the blade must also be authenticated. Laguiole en Aubrac is a registered trademark which proves its origin. The logo and name of the registered brand must also be visible - Laguiole en Aubrac signify this with a bull.
