Nice looking, but not Laguiole quality
April 22, 2015
I love the Laguiole wine tools I own and thought a matching cheese knife set would be nice. These look fine from a distance, but have a cheap feel in the hand. Handles are not particularly well sanded, edges don't line up properly, and they are pretty light in the hand. Not what I expected from Laguiole, and I think the money can be better spent on other non-brand cheese knife sets.
Pros: Appearance
Cons: Quality, Weight

Just so you know, "Laguiole" is not a brand. Many companies make Laguiole knives and so on. The quality is all over the place.
I was pretty pleased with the quality of my Jean Dubost Laguiole steak knives, but I've also seen counterfeit versions of that for sale on the Net.
From Wikipedia:
"The word laguiole is a generic term, not legally restricted to any one company or place of manufacture. Such knives are produced by a number of unrelated companies in southern France, with some 70% of production coming from Thiers, a long-established centre of the cutlery industry."
