Laguiole en Aubrac Mixed Wood Knife Set & Magnetic Block
The artist’s blades.
A good-looking knife is a thing of beauty; a set of kitchen knives from Laguiole is a work of art. Made by the most renowned knife-makers in France, this lineup includes one chef’s knife, two paring knives, a boning knife, a filet knife, and a bread knife, all housed on a magnetic oak knife block. (Tip: You can snap up the chef’s and bread knives on their own, too.) The sturdy blades are made from Swedish Sandvik steel, and the hand-carved handles show off a rainbow of rich woods: inky ebony, pale boxwood, buttery walnut, marbled olivewood, deep rosewood, and mottled juniper. In your hand or on display, these knives will confirm your status as an artist in the kitchen.
