About the brand: Laguiole Honoré Durand (pronounced Leg-Oil) is a family-run company located in the village of Laguiole, France where they have been operating for the last 30 years. The Laguiole region is famous for a knife making tradition that dates back to 1829 when the knives were originally used by peasants, vintners and farmers in the field. Nearly 190 years later, Laguiole Honoré Durand is the only maker of the style that fabricates 100% of their components in-house. This results in the impeccable quality and craftsmanship that Laguiole Honoré Durand is known for today.
