Chateau Laguiole’s home is in
which has been a center of cutlery manufacture since the twelfth century. In the 1980's, wine sommelier and collector of Laguiole knives Guy Vialis brought his dual passions as wine waiter and knife collector together, developing a waiter's corkscrew that was at once elegant and functional. Vialis' creation is the renowned Chateau Laguiole corkscrew. He wanted to make a knife which would be perfect for both the professional as well as the amateur wine buff. Each tool features handcrafted handles crafted from a variety of horn or exotic woods.
- The basic Chateau Laguiole has two elegant squared off bolsters surrounding wood or horn handles
- Grand Cru models have longer front bolsters, adding strength to the folding corkscrew mechanism
- "Master Sommelier" knives honor Master Sommelier's of the world, including the winners of the "World's Best Sommelier" taste-offs, held every 3 years. Each winner is invited to Chateau Laguiole's workshops to select their signature corkscrew handle and leather case. For certain corkscrews in the Master Sommelier series, each Foil Cutter blade is laser engraved with a unique serial number, identifying the corkscrew in this individual way.
