The traditional knife from Laguiole (in the region of Aubrac) is perhaps one of the most evocative handcrafted objects there is.
What does it evoke? Surely a vast region of France, a wild nature with its inhabitants and its herds but more certainly, it evokes an ancient know-how, tradition and skills, an art of excellence.
A knife is men’s primary and basic utensil, a tool for the everyday which transforms one’s environment in a positive way.
A Laguiole is like the madeleine of Proust, a time capsule of infinite possibilities to take in your pocket and to use along the way: by a fire, under the stars or while resting on the banks of a torrent. It will cut a piece of your cheese, a nice loaf of bread, hard wood. Lend it to your traveling companion, graciously: he’ll thank you for it.
A reassuring object therefore, but something to be responsible of, indebted to.
Beautiful from the tip of the blade down to the handle: a knife that time and patina will sublimate.
It is with this simple and poetic approach in mind that Malfroid collaborated with an exceptionnal artisan to create – hence celebrating a vibrant part of our heritage – a unique piece of art, available in selected materials and finish, an truly exceptional traditional French knife, perfectly balanced, durable.
A real Laguiole designed by Malfroid, built in the heart of France, full of beautiful memories to come.
A knife that sums up values that we cherish, towards which we strive and from which we seek inspiration for our shoes: noble materials, traditional know-how, exquisite craftsmanship.
Our shoes and our knife are made for you: take them wherever your steps will take you.
