A hallmark of pressed horn is its variability in appearance due to its natural origin. Consequently, each handle bears its own unique visual signature, making every Laguiole knife a one-of-a-kind piece.

About Pressed Horn:

Pressed horn is a distinct material employed in crafting the handles for basic Laguiole knives. This unique substance is formed by heating horn and molding it under intense pressure into a solid block. Artisans can then meticulously carve and shape this block to create the handles that grace these renowned knives.

Unlike traditional natural horn, pressed horn boasts a uniform appearance and texture. This consistency not only imparts a particular aesthetic charm but also facilitates the crafting process for skilled knife makers. It's worth noting, however, that pressed horn tends to be more delicate than its natural counterpart, rendering it more susceptible to cracking or breaking.
