Where we are based
In 1987, thanks to the commitment of passionate people, the village of Laguiole recover a forge.
All the steps of the manufacturing of the famous Laguiole knife once again takes place in the core of the place of its birthplace, in the remarkable Forge de Laguiole workshop designed by the famous French designer Philippe Starck
Made from glass and aluminum, the workshop features an 18m high gleaming blade soaring into the sky of the Aubrac plateau, a symbol of the modernism and dynamism of the company while reminding the ancestral know-how that characterizes the village of Laguiole and its territory.
25 years later, a lot of water has flowed into the Selves (Laguiole river). Awarded with Living Heritage Company in 2008, Forge de Laguiole keeps on evolving its manufacturing process, implementing the most sophisticated techniques in its workshop.
Thanks to exceptional pieces designed and magnified by the ancestral know-how of our master cutlermen Virgilio Muñoz, « best France knifemaker » and Stéphane Rambaud , awarded with Gold medal from the Nogent Cutlery and also by prestigious designers such as Philippe Starck, Jean-Michel Wilmotte, Andrée Putman, Olivier Gagnère, Matali Crasset, Yan Pennor’s, Eric Raffy,, Christian Ghion, Catherine & Bruno Lefebvre, Ora-Ito… the Forge de Laguiole knife is today an icon of the French cutlery.
