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.
