The Forge de Laguiole Airbus A350 is a special Laguiole knife which design is based on the Airbus A350XWB-airplane. Today it is one of the most advanced airplanes. Not completely by chance Airbus has strong ties with France, just like Forge de Laguiole.
This pocket knife was designed according to the same high-tech principles as those used when designing the Airbus plane. The construction, for instance, is for the most part made from light-weight, high-tech materials. In this case the white parts are made from acryl and the dark parts are made from carbon fibre. On the spine of the handle you can see that the spring has been enhanced with engravings that refer to construction parts of the airplane. The famous Laguiole honey bee was replaced by the cockpit of the airplane.
To finish the whole thing, the grip groove in the blade is shaped like an airplane and each knife is enhanced with a so-called MSN: manufacturers Serial Number. Just like with airplane parts.
The Forge de Laguiole Airbus A350 comes in a beautiful gift box with a certificate of authenticity. A real collector’s item for Laguiole enthusiasts and airplane experts.
