Laguiole en Aubrac, Sommelier, Brillant / Mammoth Ivory

The wine waiter’s knives by Laguiole en Aubrac combine the long tradition of knife makers in perfect symbiosis with a penchant for perfection, while the price, though, can be measured in worldly standards. The love of the product becomes visible in every single hand-bevelled, hand-smoothed curve and bend of the handle as well as in the harmonious choice of wood types or horn bolsters.

The variation in grain, natural growth and markings left by animals or weathering gives each handle a unique quality. Therefore, the images of our products serve as visual examples; the actual knife you receive may vary slightly in appearance.

Mammoth ivory:
Mammoth ivory refers to the tusks of the mammoth which became extinct 10,000 years ago. Mammoth were a species of elephants with mighty upwards angling tusks and longhaired fur. Until the coming of the last ice age, it roamed the cold steppes of Eurasia and North America. Remains of these impressive animals are nowadays found mainly in the Northern permafrost region of Siberia and in Alaska.

The mammoth ivory stemming from archaeological finds, also called “black ivory”, is more interesting in structure and colour than the ivory of the African elephants. Due to its preservation throughout the millenniums, this material is characterised by cracks, fractures and colour nuances. Every year during the short Siberian summer, Russian experts adventurously track, in large-scale expeditions, to the North of the Polar Circle, for the remains of mammoths. They find skeletons, tusks and also full animals, completely preserved by the ice.

The tusks of mammoths are several metres long and twisted in an unusual way. On one expedition, up to five tons of tusks were found, but currently it is just two or three tons per year. After scientific evaluation, parts of a finding are released for commercial purposes.

Mammoth teeth:
These fascinating findings tell a story of more than 10,000 years, which is obtained from the fossilised tusks of the Siberian mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius). Edge pieces, with a lively and partly rugged surface pattern, are polished. These handle scales are a unique rarity for every knife collector.
