Laguiole steak knives?

I've done a little research and understand Laguiole is not a trade mark but a specific type of knife. There are few knife makers in France, many dealers.

An authentic knife should have the Laguiole and knife maker name/logo engraved on the knife.

Where is the best place to buy? Best pricing? How can I be sure I'm getting an authentic Laguiole steak knife?

Many thanks.

  1. Authenticity should be covered by buying from a reputable retailer whose assurances can be accepted. An upmarket department store maybe?

    1. I asked about this about 10 years ago but the answers are still valid. I ended up buying the inexpensive steak knife set from Zabar's (they have the bee on the handle) and am happy with it.

        erica, thanks so much!

        This didn't come up when I searched the Board.

      2. Our seconds/overstock store Ross was flooded with them last year. Set of 6 for $25.00

          Were they authentic? $25 for 6 handmade knives from France doesn't sound right . . .

            Could be. These are mine, maybe not handmade, but about $50 regular price. They work beautifully on any meat:
