French Herdsman’s Pocket Knife.

They built a town around this knife.

Laguiole, in southern France.

Unique design originated 1829, engineered to last a lifetime. Made exclusively by Societé Laguiole. (One craftsman, one knife.) Handforged stainless steel blade. Solid brass endcaps. Palisandre wood handle. With awl for poking holes in things (sometimes necessary), corkscrew added in 1880 when bottled wine became popular.

The last time you saw this knife, Yves Montand carved up an apple while Gerard Depardieu sweated in Manon of the Spring.

Streamlined. Efficient. A little masterpiece. About 4-1/2” closed.

French Herdsman’s Knife (No. 3165).

(A rather splendid gift.)

I have had my eye (but not my hands) on this knife for quite some time. This was more of a treat to myself, rather than a required item. It is extremely well made and feels good in the hand. The blade is very well honed and the awl solid. However, the minor issue for me and hence the 4 stars, rather 5, is that the cork screw is too short. I have tried opening about 5 bottles of vino with it and was successful maybe half the time. The screw needs to be longer and a bit wider to pull that cork, rather than pulling out of the cork. That aside, I think well enough of this knife not to return it. Those wanting a unique, hand crafted knife, thats classically good looking, I highly recommend it - just dont forget to bring along a corkscrew in the field if vino is on your menu.
