A'Shepherd's Cross' - consisting of 6-8 inlaid metal rivets forming a cross - can be found on the handle of some Laguioles from the end of the 19th century to the present day. This embellishment is a reference to a legend of Catholic shepherds in need of a cross for prayer during their seasonal migrations between the mountains and the plains. Far from any chapel or cathedral, the shepherd would thrust his opened Laguiole blade-down into the earth, exposing the visible cross on the handle for purposes of prayer.Length : 22.5 cm (8.9).

Handles = real wood, so please wash/dry this cutlery by hand (avoid dishwasher). Part of the manufacturing process is still done by hand and the handles are from real wood. (therefore slight differences might occur).
Delivered from France in two wooden LAGUIOLE presentation boxes. Rosewood is a natural wood and therefore the colour-shades of the handles in your set will vary. Rosewood is a richly hued timber - red/brownish with darker veining - found in many different shades. Rosewood is strong and heavy and can easily be polished - making it an ideal wood for flatware/cutlery handles also used for luxury flooring and furniture, guitars, billiard cues, etc. ALSO AVAILABLE IN OUR SHOP ("FRENCH-DIFFUSION").
