Laguiole with Pressed Horn Handle

FOLDING KNIVES - TABLE KNIVES


Laguiole knife handles made of pressed horn are very popular models, as they offer an economical alternative to the more expensive Laguiole knife handles made of horn tips. They are greatly appreciated for their soft and pleasant texture, reminiscent of buffalo horn.

Pressed horn is a material used for the manufacturing of handles for certain Laguiole knives. It consists of horn that is heated and molded under pressure to form a solid block that can then be worked or sculpted to create knife handles or other items.

Unlike horn tips, pressed horn is more uniform in appearance and texture; however, pressed horn is also more fragile than natural horn and may crack or break more easily.

In summary, Laguiole knife handles made of pressed horn offer an economical alternative to horn tip models. Pressed horn provides a natural aesthetic, a soft texture, and a wide variety of colors. The pressed horn used for Laguiole knife handles mainly comes from Asia.
