Compact well made,

"Of all the European knife companies, Laguiole Gille is the best in terms, of workmanship and parts. While expensive, the fit is exceptional, and the blade is perfectly centered. I chose bone for the handle and the color is handsome. The size of this knife is a perfect pocket companion and it comes in a leather bag to keep it clean and free of scratches.
If you want a pocket knife that is compact with big capabilities and great quality features, this is the one.

Beautiful knife, lousy information,
December 18, 2014

"First of all, this is a beautiful knife. Mine is Snakewood/Amourette.
Information is not quite correct. My knife does not have a 3" blade. It is 2-7/8" and the cutting edge is more like 2-5/8". This knife was manufactured by Fontenille Pataud (the nice gentleman in customer service was not able to tell me the manufacturer, but I think he was just not in the mood to take the time to look it up), and I believe it is their 9cm XS Classic model. It is very small. Had I been given the choice, I probably would have preferred the Laguiole 10.5cm Le Pocket.
Price is very fair for what it is, and it is such a beautiful knife I do not intend on returning it, but just know it is small.
This knife is very well made. It is a very good size to carry in the pocket of dress slacks. It comes very sharp. The file work on the spring is well done and attractive.
If you want a well made, slightly modernized (they have added Teflon washers and a blade lock) yet authentic, made in France Laguiole and don't mind the smaller size, then this is your knife. Anyone that appreciates a well made knife will like this one."

"I was disappointed in the quality of the wood on this $250 knife. The catalog picture looked great. However, the wood was very shiny and it looked cheap and almost like plastic. I took it to the nearest Orvis store and showed the knife to one of the salesman that I've built a good relationship with over the years. He agreed and was surprised at the low quality of the knife. He has owned this very knife for quite some time and his looks great. So I returned this knife and ordered another knife from Orvis which I expect to be of better quality."

Wonderful Knife!,
December 28, 2012
from Michigan
"I bought one of these with the wooden handle as a Christmas "present" for myself from my wife. :-) It arrived before the expected date and it exceeded my expectations. It is flawless, sharp and a beautiful, hand-crafted knife that is more amazing than the picture and description on the Orvis web site convey. The hand sculpted main spring on the back is a work of art, but Orvis has virtually no pictures of that (barely visible in the picture). I recommend that Orvis add more pictures as well as more details describing this knife as the history is intriguing. My only dilemma now is whether to carry it, or just display it in my collection."

"We purchased one of these GORGEOUS knives for a Christmas gift and after it came in the mail, we turned around and ordered 2 more to give as gifts to 2 other people! These knives are not only gorgeous, but so well-made and worth every penny. Don't hesitate to purchase. Fine craftsmanship and excellent quality!"
