Thomas Rédacteur's insight:
Bonne nouvelle pour tous les amateurs de couteaux Laguiole en Allemagne et en Italie : le site web va bientôt être publié dans deux nouvelles langues, à savoir l’allemand et l’italien, ce qui donnera encore plus de visibilité et de trafic à la marque Laguiole et toute la gamme de coutellerie disponible à la vente. Les pays limitrophes de la France représentent bien évidemment des marchés prometteurs et l’intérêt pour le savoir-faire Laguiole émanant de ces pays est très fort. C’est l’une des raisons pour lesquelles Laguiole Attitude a souhaité traduire son site dans ces deux nouvelles langues et d’autres pourraient encore suivre par le futur. C’est une nouvelle preuve des ambitions non négligeables de la boutique officielle Laguiole, qui souhaite devenir la référence de la coutellerie Laguiole non seulement à l’échelle française, mais également sur le plan européen et mondial. Déjà traduit en anglais, le site est populaire chez les anglais et américains et sa présence sur le marketplace Amazon UK accentue ce positionnement international. D’ailleurs, pour continuer à se faire connaître et assurer sa promotion, Laguiole Attitude s’est inscrit aux Digital Commerce Stars, compétition des meilleurs sites de vente en ligne, édition 2013. Retrouvez la candidature de Laguiole Attitude, dans la catégorie « international » du site, et n’hésitez pas à voter pour le site via Facebook !

Where better to start than at the official website of the Laguiole brand ? Whether yoou are looking for an original hand crafted Laguiole knife or in the contrary a more modern version for a much cheaper price, than Laguiole Attitude is the place for you. It offers a wide range of knives and cutlery, including the typical French folding knife, beautiful hand made cutlery sets, and even corckscrews.

 

But first of all, here is a reminder of the history of the Laguiole knife. It originated from the small town of Laguiole, and was, according to the stories heard today, used by shepherds in the French moutains.

 

After the second world war, the knife starting getting popular and was mass produced in Asia. Though the knives were made mostly in China, they were sold in Europe and especially in France. Therefore, the knife became very famous, but the town of Laguiole did not, since there was no association between the poor quality mass produced knives and the original town of Laguiole.

 

A recent study showed that most French people know "Laguiole" as being a type of knife, but haven't heard of the village. 

 

Recently, a French businessman bought the rights to the name "Laguiole", and made it a brandname. He now produces various items and not only knives, under the name "Laguiole", some of which are on sale on Laguiole Attitude.

 

Although this affair upset the knife makers in the town of Laguiole, French courts agree that the name has become a generic term linked to the shape of a specific knife, and the actual town has less importance. Therefore, the brand is totally legitimate.

 

On the Laguiole Attitude website, you will find various types of knives, some from the new "Laguiole brand" and others made by craftsmen in the traditional way. Feel free to browse through the huge range of Laguiole knives and find the one for you !

If you're looking for a decent blog or website giving you an insight into the French Laguiole knife and also the newer Laguiole cutlery sets, than you might enjoy this blog about the French type of classic knives.

 

Although the design is rather minimalist, the content is pretty interesting and should give you some good advice and interesting facts about the Laguiole knife in general, while highlighting some specific models as well, with good tips about which ones to choose.

 

There are many types of Laguiole knifes for sale nowadays, ranging from hand made very rares designs to manufactured models, which can be very nice all the same. Of course, budget is always an important question. A handcrafted Laguiole knife will never cost the same as a manufactured version, and the price difference can be staggering.

 

If you think you are buying a handmade knife, make sure to take a good look at it, especially the blade and backe of the handle. If the traditional Laguiole "bee" is too perfect, than there is a strong chance it was machine made.

 

There are various websites which offer the real deal. Knives made 100% by hand and sold with a certificate signed by the knife maker. Laguiole Attitude.com offers these sort of knives, in its "collectors" range. Be sure to take a look.
