Le Fidele has been a family company for decades. Their cuttler's shop is located in Lezoux a commune which belongs to the Auvergne region in central France. In their small shop, Le Fidele produces traditional Laguiole products such as pocket knives, steak knifes, steak forks and waiter's knives. If you are looking for a reasonably priced and solid cutler shop with a compelling price/perfomance ratio this is your best choice. Le Fidele is well known for their waiter's knives. Their grip plates are made from bocote wood. Bocote (Cordia gerascanthus), also called "Mexican rosewood", is a very decorative hardwood from South America. The single-striped grain ranges from a dark brown to black, contrasted against a coffee-brown background, aged to a beautiful warm-brown tone that clearly accents the black grain! 

The forge Le Fidele is also a member and co-founder of the A.I.P.C.L (l´association international des proprieétaires de couteaux Laguiole). The aim of the A.I.P.C.L is to obtain the old Laguiole tradition. If a laguiole blacksmith practices his craft with passion he creates a handmade individual artwork with every knife. He knows that there are a lot of Laguiole knives around the world which are manufactured mechanically in cheap mass production and wrongly sold as original Laguiole. Costumer who expect a „made in France“ Laguiole are dissapointed when they see the quality of this products not knowing that the original Laguiole have a much better quality and are manufactured individually. The A.I.P.C.L is the only organization world wide which publishes an authenticity certificate for nearly all forges in France. You can be sure that you carry a 100% original Laguiole knife made in France in your hands if there is a authenticity certificate nearby.

All knives that are offered at original-laguiole fulfill the strict trade requirements of the world protection of species conference (CITES) at the usage of tropical woods, horn or ivory for the knife grip plates.
