Laguiole En Aubrac - pistachio wood - traditional knife

Item n. 2450

Quick Overview

Laguiole, which can be defined as the "capital" of the Aubrac, is a small town of about 900 inhabitants that became known all over the world for the traditional Laguiole knife.

The Laguiole knife, also known as a knife-corkscrew, loved by the best sommeliers in the world, is said to have evolved from the one used daily by the people of the region since the fourteenth century. It is said that they received it from their parents on the occasion of the First Communion, and used it with love for life as a friend, and as an "amulet".

The Laguiole knife refers to an older model called capuchadou, which the Aubrac breeders used every day since the fourteenth century. The farmers brought it with them, hung on their belts and used it to work wood, or to cut bread and cheese. It is said that, at the end of the working day, they put it on the ground, like a cross, to offer their evening prayer.

The current Laguiole knife, has its prototype in the one designed by Pierre-Jean Calmels, at the beginning of the nineteenth century. At the time, many Catalans lived in this region, used for deforestation or other jobs. They used a clasp knife, a curved blade called a navaja, and Calmels created a beautiful and functional instrument, fusing the traditional navaja and Laguiole knife, heir to the capuchadou. Still today, keeping the tradition, each Laguiole En Aubrac knife is handcrafted by Laguiole's artisans.
