The beautifully crafted Artisan range of Laguiole by Louis Thiers embodies the true rustic charm of Laguiole. This knife has a gently contoured genuine rosewood handle for comfort and control. Each knife is unique as no two pieces of rosewood are the same.
Made of hammered Damascus forged full tang stainless steel, these knives are not only beautiful, they are also razor-sharp. The blade’s core of Japanese VG10 steel is clad on each side with Damascus steel composed of 33 alternating layers of 430 and 304 grade stainless steel. Resulting 67-layer blade is thin and light yet strong and hard, with a supersharp cutting edge that has a hardness score of HRC 60 (+/- 1) which reduces drag when cutting and helps to quickly release food from the blade.
