This Cuisine de France 12 Piece Laguiole Steak Knife Set is the perfect complement to any dinnerware or flatware set. The slim, sinuous outline of the knives was inspired by a shepherd's tool first manufactured in the French village of Laguiole in the 19th century. Each blade is expertly crafted from high-carbon stainless steel for strength and durability. Their razor-sharp edges slice through steak and chops with ease. The ergonomically designed handles provide a comfortable grip, and are perfectly weighted for optimum balance and control. Set includes 12 steak knives. Hand wash with warm water and a mild detergent; rinse and dry immediately.
