Laguiole

Musée du couteau de Laguiole, de l'objet forgé et de l'outils tranchant

An unmissable stage after the free visit of the workshop, guided and commentated of the "Coutellerie (knife makers) de Laguiole Honoré Durand" workshop - a living space with the the Damascus steel blacksmith (the only blacksmith in Laguiole to forge Damascus steel).
The Museum offers an unusual, unguided tour on the theme of the old-fashioned forge. History of knives from their origins to today. From Monday to Friday you can watch the famous Damaskus blades (multi-layered steel) being forged. You'll learn about the different knife-making trades, which are presented in the form of workshops of the time. There's an exhibition of thousands of cutting tools and forged objects used in former trades. A unique exhibition of our collection of Laguiole knives from their origin. The monumental sculpture of the biggest Laguiole in the world: 10 tonnes, 6 metres high. The "Coutellerie de Laguiole Honoré Durand" can't be seen from the road - you need to go 250m into the industrial estate.
