Laguiole Jean Dubost steak knives
Jean Dubost's Laguiole steak knives are characterized by their beautiful, classic design, with the honey bee as the main icon. There are three variants, each with its own purpose. They are particularly distinguished in steel thickness and blade design.
The 'classic' steak knife from Laguiole is the best-known variant, you see them in almost every French bistrot. It's a robust yet simple steak knife with a 1.2 mm serrated blade that you never have 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 'exclusive' series has been developed for meat lovers with a preference for a smooth-ground blade. These razor-sharp steak knives lie comfortably in the hand and cut effortlessly through all types of meat. With a thickness of 1.5 mm, the blade is slightly heavier and almost never needs to be sharpened when used carefully.
If you're going for luxury and top quality, choose the 'premium' variant, the flagship of steak knives. These knives also have a smooth-ground blade, but with a steel thickness of 2.5 mm. The nicely balanced blade cuts like the best. This is the knife for home cooks and culinary enthusiasts!
To keep the knives sharp and to store them safely, they are delivered – depending on the variant – in a wooden knife block or closed box.
Original or counterfeit?
If you want to make sure you buy a Laguiole steak knife made in France, make sure that the country of origin 'France' is engraved on the blade. If not, it's from China.
