3pc. set 8″ clever, 9″ cheese knife and 6″ spreader in wood box
Made in France
Laguiole is actually the name of a village in the Aubrac Mountains of the Aveyron region of France. It’s also the name of a cheese, and the generic name for a folding knife. It’s not a brand name, which is why you can find Laguiole style cutlery made all over the world, across a range of price points.
The original Laguiole knives were folding pocket knives with handles crafted from horn or wood which were used by farmers and shepherds in the early 1800s. Today’s versions feature the same slim profile, although much of the production has moved outside the town of Laguiole to other areas of France.
The Jean Néron Coutellerie is located in Chabreloche, north of Laguiole in the Puy-de-Dome, in south-central France. A third generation family business, Jean Néron prides itself on producing cutlery according to longstanding tradition, but practical enough to be used every day.
