I'm a mountaineer, and we are belong an ethnie, the "Rouergat"
our tradition is to have a folding knife multi-purpose,
since 1829 there is a famous blacksmith, Calmels,
who is manufacturing the "Laguiole knifes",
he still yet manufacturing, and trading his knifes
"ONLY" in his shop of Laguiole city (12210 - Aveyron - France)

unfortunatly, in our days, those knifes are to much fashionable,
and there are too many copies from everywhere ... even China ...
under the name of "Laguiole"

here on display, only "Calmels Laguiole"
