Made in France, Aveyron.

An authentic company in the heart of a territory of traditions

The artisanal cutlery with the Family spirit of Laguiole en Aubrac® is one of the major players who have revived the tradition of high-end cutlery in Aveyron, which had unfortunately died out over time. The rebirth of local production while maintaining traditional practices was the common thread that led the company to create a forge and its assembly workshop in the historic area of French countryside: Aveyron.
