The Jean Dubost brand was established in 1920 by Mr. Pierre Dubost, a second generation professional cutler. Starting out as a small business manufacturing knives solely intended for professionals, the company has grown tremendously over the years. Today, Jean Dubost manufactures a wide range of cutlery, flatware, kitchenware and gifts that are marketed to professional and amateur cooks around the world.
Jean Dubost has also added a touch of novelty to its products, thus offering its customers a vast choice of colors and designs to meet the constant change in worldwide trends.
The company’s flagship product, the Laguiole knife, still carries the mark of its ancestors: a bee engraved on all Laguiole products. It was originally part of Napoleon Bonaparte’s imperial seal. The blade of the knife is forged from high-grade stainless steel, and put through 25 stages of cutting, polishing and sharpening. Soft and subtle to the touch, a Laguiole knife will stay sharp and is rust resistant.
Recently, the Laguiole brand has expanded to include flatware, wine waiters and cutlery crafted with the same quality and craftsmanship. Laguiole cutlery has set the benchmark for excellence and quality. All materials used are of the very finest quality, from olive and juniper wood, to real horn and acrylic.
The company’s dedication to a manufacturing process that guarantees quality compliance at every stage has won them the prestigious “Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant” label. The EPV label is awarded to select companies that demonstrate French manufacturing excellence.
With their Natura Line, Jean Dubost has broken new ground and highlighted their commitment to eco-responsibility and sustainable development. All products in this tableware range are 100% recyclable, from the blade and handle to the wooden box and the label printed with vegetable-based inks.
