The Roquefort knife, named after the famous town of Aveyron and its iconic cheese, is a true testament to the artisanal heritage of this region. Contrary to popular belief, it was never specifically designed for scraping cheese of the same name, but rather is a versatile tool serving everyday life.
This regional knife is distinguished by its straight and elegant line, embellished with two massive bolsters at the ends of its handle. The ergonomics of this handle offer a pleasant and reliable grip.
- Handle Material: Olive wood.
- Delivered with the knife: Synthetic leather case.
- Blade Material: 12C27 stainless steel.
- Folding Mechanism: Slip-joint system.
- Made in France by Laguiole en Aubrac.
Originating from the Aveyron limestone plateaus, like its Laguiole and Aveyronnais knife neighbors, the Roquefort is a folding pocket knife that combines tradition and practicality. The handle of this knife, made of olive wood, is framed by two stainless steel bolsters. A plain spring completes this elegant knife, which is characterized by its simplicity and effectiveness. The straight, brushed stainless steel blade evokes the shape of a sage leaf.
This knife of character, with meticulous finishes, had seen a hiatus in its production for several decades, before being updated. Today, the Roquefort is appreciated more than ever for its timeless charm and robustness, living testimonies to the Aveyron’s knife-making art.
