The Laguiole knife  – the classic French style dining knife – was first designed in 1829 by Jean-Pierre Calmels.

Calmel’s concept of the knife became the pattern for the style, featuring a forged “bee” symbol the distinctive trademark. In 1880, some models of the laguiole knife also began featuring a corkscrew – a response to demands from waiters in northern Aveyron.
