Technical information handle:
PMMA (polymethyl methacrylate) is a transparent thermoplastic plastic, better known as acrylic. This strong plastic can easily be molded into all kinds of shapes when heated.
Technical information blade:
AISI 430 is a stainless steel type to which chromium has been added. This type of steel is often used for cutlery because it can be formed well (spoons and forks), has a strong gloss layer and does not rust quickly.
AISI 420 is a stronger stainless steel to which, in addition to chromium, carbon has also been added. 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 stays sharp longer. In addition, it is highly resistant to rust formation.
HRC52/56 is the standard with 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.
Difference between Classic, Exclusive and Premium version
There are three variants, each with their own purpose. They differ in particular in terms of steel thickness and blade design.
Classic Laguiole's 'classic' steak knife is the most famous variant, you see them in almost every French bistrot. It is a robust but simple steak knife with a 1.2 mm thick serrated blade that you never need to sharpen. Ease of use is paramount here, but not everyone likes a serrated blade because it cuts through the meat in a somewhat coarse way. The accompanying spoons and forks have a steel thickness of 1.5 mm. The 24-piece set is packed in an open cutlery box.
Exclusive The 'exclusive' series has been developed for enthusiasts with a preference for a smooth-sharpened blade. These razor-sharp steak knives feel great in the hand and cut effortlessly through all types of meat. The blade is slightly heavier with a thickness of 1.5 mm and hardly ever needs to be sharpened if used carefully. The accompanying spoons and forks have a steel thickness of 1.5 mm. The 24-piece set is packed in a beautifully designed, lockable cutlery cassette.
Premium If you go for luxury and top quality, choose the 'premium' version, the flagship of the steak knives. These knives also have a smoothly ground blade, but with a steel thickness of 2.5 mm. The beautifully balanced blade cuts like the best. This is the knife for home cooks and culinary enthusiasts! The accompanying spoons and forks are also heavier and have a steel thickness of 2.0 mm. The 24-piece set is packed in a beautifully designed, lockable cutlery cassette.
About Laguiole Jean Dubost
The family business Jean Dubost was founded in 1920. Today it is run by the 4th generation who combine 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 the handles, come from France. In the factory, raw steel (AISI 420 standard with hardness HRC 52/56) is transformed into a razor-sharp, shiny polished blade in a process of 9 production phases. 1.5 million Laguiole steak knives are made every year, almost half of which are intended for export.
Original or counterfeit?
Unfortunately, there is also imitation Laguiole, which is mainly produced in China. Although often not immediately visible from 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 therefore not authentic.
