Product Description

"It is better to wear out, than to rust out."
When is a knife as handy as a lockback, but is not quite a lockback? When it is a real French Laguiole! This superb 4 3/4 inch (closed) knife (by Baladeo)is the perfect reflection of the quality workmanship and materials that have made Laguiole famous. The mirror polished clip blade, forged from 440 steel, doesn't close until you close it with a substantial press down.

The Laguiole name means excellence and heirloom quality. A single craftsman works on each knife, and the particular handworked design on the spring tells you which craftsman made it...According to legend, Napoleon was on his way to a campaign and stopped in the village of Laguiole. The shepherds were so honored with his visit they offered one knife to each of his marshals. Napoleon then authorized them to put the Imperial Bee at the junction between the spring and the blade. (See Inset) The back of the spring of the knife is even carefully fileworked with a beautiful design. The 4 inch single blade is made with 440 stainless steel. Stainless bolsters and liner complete this fine folder. Shown with Fossil Walrus Ivory dark. This little treasure will stun your senses - A perfect knife for your pocket or purse!
