Love the forks!
I bought a set of Forge de Laguiole knives and they claimed some secret T12 steel with higher carbon. It was likely just a slightly modified 440 steel.
I've been saying all along; since 10, 12, 16 and 32k stones were the fad; since .0025 micron strops;
A rugged, well rounded gyuto edge
Video to follow?
I have their steak knives in olive wood. Very nice stuff. No idea how the kitchen knives are, though. Never seen them.
