Handmade in the village of Laguiole, France, the Forge de Laguiole "Sommeliers" as they are often called are the only high-end Laguiole waiter-style corkscrews to feature the traditional shepherd's cross on most models. All Forge de Laguiole corkscrews are made of Martensitic stainless steel. It is important to note that high grade (and cost) martensitic stainless steel is used due to its hardness, strength, and wear resistance qualities.
