Cutting and blades production
It’s the first step of the production: here the pieces are designed and they will made the knife. In our company, the production is manual.
In cutlery jargon, these pieces are named “supplies”.
Cutting is made thanks to cutters activated by hand, by one of our colleagues. The different shapes are made with molds. The cutting workshop allows us to transform raw material of high quality: stainless 12C27 steel Sandwick (Sweden), carbon brass steel, nickel silver (upmarket alloy of copper and stainless).
During this first step, we get the beginnings of blades, bolsters, springs and bees.
After cutting, the hand-crafted manufacture of our items requires a great number of steps. The knife’s blade of a Laguiole closing knife totals up 20 steps of production.
