This set of knives from Laguiole Elite will likewise transform and improve the ways in which you and your guests appreciate and enjoy steaks. Featuring a blade that folds into the handle like with a pocketknife, these legendary dining implements are known as a Laguiole-type knife. Created as a tool for rural French farmers in the 1800s, these knives emigrated to fine dining tables because of their superior design. The handle is equally stylized and is based on an 18th century pistol grip.
