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.

About Olivewood

For centuries, olivewood has been a popular material for crafting knife handles due to its striking appearance and durability. Its golden yellow color, beautifully shaded and exhibiting either a knotty or linear pattern, adds a touch of elegance to any knife.

Renowned for their slow growth in arid, barren soil, olive trees produce wood that is exceptionally hard and dense - surpassing any other European-native wood in hardness. This slow growth results in a highly resilient material that withstands the test of time.

The olive tree's irregular branch structure bestows the wood with unique properties. Each tree's distinct knotty shape yields a one-of-a-kind pattern, ensuring that every olivewood knife handle is truly individual and unmatched. This timeless, natural beauty makes olivewood an enduring favorite for knife enthusiasts and collectors alike.

Due to the use of natural materials, the appearance varies from one handle to another. The images shown are not contractually binding.
