Laguiole en Aubrac Horn Wine Key - Kaufmann Mercantile

This stainless steel wine opener with a solid horn handle was manually shaped, assembled, and decorated by a single craftsperson from start to finish; no two wine openers are exactly alike. With its durable solid horn handle, rust-proof Sandvik stainless steel components, and sleek, sinuous profile, this wine opener makes for an extraordinary gift or a beautiful addition to a lavish dinner party or well-appointed home bar.

The first Laguoile knife was created by Pierre-Jean Calmels in 1829, and the knife-making trade has come to define the area ever since. Laguoile en Aubrac, the region’s oldest maker, produces this wine opener, which is fastidiously handcrafted by a single master cutler, from handle-shaping to blade-fitting. 

Made of hardy, low-maintenance materials, this impressive wine opener is made to last for generations of special occasions. The blade is forged from ultra strong Swedish Sandvik stainless steel, which sharpens easily, holds an excellent edge, and never rusts. The handle is harvested from the solid, dense tip of a cow or water buffalo horn, ensuring a smooth and reliable grip. The handle’s striking pattern and the blade’s slim profile take this wine opener far beyond a functional tool, and into the territory of a beautiful tabletop addition or extraordinary gift for a wine-loving friend.

Use & Care

Hand wash immediately with warm water and mild detergent. Towel-dry to prevent water spots. If needed, the stainless steel can be cleaned with a little white vinegar or a stainless steel cleaner.

The solid horn handle can be polished or periodically treated with a light layer of mineral oil. Once or twice a year, treat the spring of the blade and the corkscrew with a drop of mechanical oil to ensure a smooth open and close.

Production & Design

While the production of Laguoile knives is not limited to the Laguiole region of France, it is only in this small village that production is still done by hand rather than machine. Laguoile en Aubrac is the oldest, most established, and highest quality maker in the entire region. Since 1892, each knife manufactured at Laguoile en Aubrac is the product of up to 216 individual steps and is the handiwork of a single cutler. These masters of their craft each have their own unique pattern or mark, which is stamped into the metal spine of the knife, allowing each piece’s individual lineage to be traced.
