Technical information blade:
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 layer and does not rust quickly.
AISI 420 is a strong stainless steel type to which carbon has been added in addition to chrome. This steel is less easy to bend and is very suitable for making knives. With a heat treatment, this steel is extra hardened (HRC52 / 56) so that the cutting surface is damaged less quickly and remains sharp for longer. It is also highly resistant to corrosion.
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 France and meets the highest European safety requirements.
About Laguiole Jean Dubost
The family business Jean Dubost 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. With the exception of a few tropical woods, all parts, such as the steel and handles, also come from France. In the factory, raw steel (AISI 420 standard with hardness HRC 52/56) is transformed in a process of 9 production phases into a razor-sharp, mirror-polished blade. Every year 1.5 million Laguiole steak knives are made, almost half of which is destined for export.
Unfortunately, there is also imitation Laguiole that is mainly produced in China. Although often not directly visible on the outside (the logo, the honeybee, is even copied), the material and manufacture is of considerably lower quality. Imitation is also easy to recognize. If it is not explicitly engraved in the steel blade of the knife France, the knife is not produced in France and is therefore not authentic.
