These are NOT real tortoise shell. That would be illegal. The handles are made of acrylic and look so much like real tortoise that even US Customs double checks the paperwork. They are truly works of art!
The Laguiole knife, from the south of France, has a history dating back to the early 1800s. The distinctive bee, a mark identifying, and distinguishing, all Laguiole products, comes from the imperial seal of Napoleon Bonaparte.
- 6 stainless steel steak knives with Acrylic Tortoiseshell Handles
- Wooden storage box
- Each knife is signed by Jean Dubost, legendary French knife craftsman
- Rust and corrosion resistant
- We recommend washing your cutlery gently by hand under running hot water and drying it immediately after. However, most of the Laguiole products, apart from those with natural wood handles, are dishwasher safe.
These knives go through 25 different manual production processes before they are stamped, ground, and polished.
A Certificate of Authenticity is included with each set.
Note these are the Premier Sets with the 2.5mm gauge, and not the cheaper "everyday" 1.5mm gauge you find elsewhere. They are thus not only beautiful on your table, but a joy to hold in your hands.
Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery.
