In the heart of the French countryside, the Dubost family has been creating fine cutlery for four generations. The design of these steak knives was inspired by a shepherd's tool first manufactured in the village of Laguiole in the 19th century. Made of thicker, heavier-gauge stainless steel than other Laguiole flatware on the market, each is hand polished and finished for a difference in quality you can really see and feel. Set includes four 4 1/4" steak knives and a wooden storage case. High-quality, heavy-gauge stainless steel provides superior durability and stain resistance and pleasing heft. Slightly curved blade with serrated edge cuts easily through meat. Bolsters are decorated with a tiny bee, a symbol of France's Laguiole region. Handles of polished stainless steel with three visible rivets. Individually polished and finished by hand. Knives coordinate with our Laguiole flatware. Dishwasher safe. Made in France.
