I was disappointed that the seller did not make it clear that these are Laguiole "style" made in China and not made in France. I suppose I should not have expected fine a quality at this price. They dont look too bad and forks dont have to be sharp. The seller did offer to refund if I went to all the bother of returning them. This is such a hassle I kept them but they do not sit well in the hand as the small insect decoration somehow seems to be in the wrong place for comfort *(sse below) so they ended up in the charity shop.
*My French sets (I have two one in red and one in black both have the little insect as embossed as part of the fork itself. This set has the insect added on as a separate piece of metal rather like 'real' Laguiole knives but unless you awkwardly use the fork on it side this is not comfortable to use. Probably designed by a chopstick user!
