About Laguiole Jean Dubost
The family business Jean Dubost was founded in 1920. Nowadays it is run by the 4th generation that combines the traditional way of making knives with modern industrial production techniques.
The range of Laguiole Jean Dubost is made entirely in France. Apart from a few tropical wood species, all parts, such as the steel and the handles, come from France. At the factory, crude steel (AISI 420 standard with hardness HRC 52/56) is transformed into a razor-sharp, polished blade in a process of 9 production phases. Every year 1,5 million Laguiole steak knives are made, almost half of which is destined for export.
Unfortunately, there is imitation Laguiole 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 manufacture is of considerably lower quality. Imitation is easy to recognize. If it is not explicitly engraved in the steel blade of the France knife, the knife is not produced in France and therefore not authentic.
