Dating back for over six hundred years, the Thiers region of France is renowned for its excellence in knife making. Au Nains Laguiole steak knives are meticulously handcrafted in the bucolic hills of southern France, where each knife is individually handmade by local artisans using time-honored craftsmanship, preserving the tradition of high-quality knife making. These knives have razor-sharp stainless-steel blades that easily slice through steak while feeling substantial and comfortable in your hand. Au Nains distinguished Laguiole steak knives have exquisite black horn handles featuring decorative etching on the spine of the knife with embellished rivets. Laguiole knives are a traditional style of knife that originated in France in the 1820s and is renowned for having a three-rivet curved handle and a bee emblem on its bolster.
The bee is a symbol of Napoleon and the French monarchy. Made with impeccable craftsmanship, the undeniable quality of these knives will make any table setting chic and glamorous. These steak knives come housed in a beautiful wood box that is ideal for storage and gift giving. The legend of Au Nain began in 1885 in St. Remy, France, by the current owners great-grandfather, Gaston Saint-Joanis. When his main competitor boasted of being the Giant of the knife, the imposing 65 Saint-Joanis replied with characteristic humor and panache by creating the brand Au Nain ... the dwarf! And that is how this giant of the French cutlery business was born! Four generations later, Au Nain has established its reputation with consumers around the world who demand high standards from their hand-made stainless-steel knives and utensils.
