Jean Dubost’s legendary knives and flatware are made in the Thiers region of France. Dubost’s cutlery combines the traditional craftsmanship for which the area is famous with a contemporary flair for color. Whether you’re looking for a steak knife, cheese knife or pocket knife, Dubost has you covered. For nearly 100 years, Jean Dubost has produced not only the much-sought-after Laguiole knife — with its trademark curved handle and bee insignia — but also three other brands: Pradel kitchen knives and cutting boards; Le Thiers classic cutlery; and Jean Dubost flatware, whose handles come in a mix of materials and hues. Dubost prides itself on innovation. After all, its blueprint may be six centuries old, but its products continually evolve.
From elegant glassware to stylish serving pieces, these luxe designs are perfectly cut out for a wine-and-cheese party, whether you host a small gathering with friends or a big soiree with a cast of dozens. Now all you have to do is decide who's worthy of an invite.
It's not just the season of giving, it's the season of giving great parties. So we gathered our stylish staff—and their well-dressed guests—to show you how to pull off the ultimate holiday soiree. Watch the video, and then shop your essential party pieces here.
The crème de la crème of cutting utensils, Jean Dubost's Laguiole knives date back to the early 1800s. Each piece is made by a single craftsman who transforms the steel blade into a finished product through a series of more than 100 steps. Experience these wonders for yourself: This sale offers table knives, cheese cutters, and butter spreaders (made in France’s storied Thiers region). The curved handles come in materials from ivory to stainless, and each bears the trademark bee.
From metallic canisters to pinecone votive holders to a sweet little moose ornament, there's a pared-down, homespun (and subtly Scandinavian) feel to these holiday-themed accents. We love their simple, accessible charm.
