Technical information has:
AISI 430 is a stainless steel type to which chrome has been added. This type of steel is often used for cutlery because it is easy to shape (spoons and forks), has a strong gloss and does not rust quickly.
AISI 420 is a strong stainless steel grade to which carbon has been added in addition to chromium. This steel is less easy to bend and is very suitable for making knives. This steel is additionally hardened (HRC52 / 56) with a heat treatment so that the cutting surface is damaged less quickly and remains sharp for longer. In addition, it is highly resistant to rust.
HRC52 / 56 is the standard by which the hardness of the steel is indicated. This type of steel will not break easily and is less susceptible to rusting.
This product is produced in Europe and meets the highest safety requirements.
About Laguiole Jean Dubost
The Jean Dubost family business was founded in 1920. Today it is led by the 4th generation that combines the traditional way of making knives with modern industrial production techniques.
The Laguiole Jean Dubost range is made entirely in France. Apart from a few tropical woods, all parts, such as the steel and the handles, also come from France. In the factory, raw steel (AISI 420 standard with hardness HRC 52/56) is transformed into a razor-sharp, polished blade in a process of 9 production phases. 1.5 million Laguiole steak knives are made every year, almost half of which are destined for export.
Unfortunately, there is also Laguiole imitation that is mainly produced in China. Although often not immediately visible on the outside (the logo, the honeybee, is even copied), the material and the manufacturing are of considerably lower quality. Imitation is easy to recognize. If France is not explicitly engraved in the steel blade of the knife, the knife is not produced in France and is therefore not authentic.
