Nightly Knife Porn: Défilé des Laguioles edition

Laguiole Porn

As I wrote last night, I received a Laguiole folding knife from  La Coutellerie de Laguiole Honoré Durand via the North American Importer –Sport Hansa . I am featuring my knife and the style in general this week, with a 5 from the Grinder with the maker due out on Thursday and my review in the que for Friday. But tonight I am going to sit back and simply admire the flowing lines and skillful filework that are hallmarks of the style. So sit back and enjoy Défilé des Laguioles.

Our first shot is actually from Sport Hansa and features Honore Durand Laguilotes.

 

The Laguiole folding knife often comes with a corkscrew, or may relegate the blade to secondary duty even…

 

Beautiful shot…

 

The French do get some things right for sure.

 

This guy can’t be too bad either…

 

There are lots of small makers in the region making this regional style.

 

Portrait settings in effect…

 

Oooohhh…..

 

French Cowboy?

 

Patina.

Cool filework…

 

nice…

 

Here are some Durands with musical motif, rather than the classic “Bee”

 

Have a great Independence Day America! And a hearty thank you to the People of France for providing the pivotal alliance to help a ragtag bunch of colonials achieve Liberté .

Merci beaucoup!

    Those are some lovely knives. I don’t need one, and I don’t want one, but I’d kinda like to have one, so maybe someday…

    I love my Laguiole. Mine is a larger one, I need a smaller one for EDC use one of these days.

    My Laguiole was purchased for me by my lovely wife when she was visiting France almost two decades ago. It’s similar to the one in front of that bottle of fine Balvenie except larger. Horn handle and brass bolsters, with beautiful filework down the spine. 3.7″ blade of polished 440 stainless with my name engraved on it. Still in gorgeous condition after all these years. Marketing materials packed with it indicate a price of 68 Euros which would have been about $90 at the time. They still sell an almost identical model for 145 Euros, currently about $168. Mine is certainly not for sale..
